Inkophile had a great post today about a letter from J. Herbin’s general manager regarding a few inks that had accumulated SITB (slime in the bottle). While the ratio of inks with SITB was very small compared to the number of inks sold, J. Herbin did extensive research to remedy the problem. I also learned that they made the materials in their inks more eco-friendly, which means they are better for the planet, your health and the health of the people mixing the inks.

If you are a regular reader to La Plume Etoile, you know that I love J. Herbin inks. This letter and quality at the company makes me love using their inks even more. In fact, yesterday I got J. Herbin’s Rouge Bourgogne on my favorite white shirt. Acting fast, I was able to wash it out quickly and you’d never know it was there. This has happened to me several times and it is so reassuring to know it will wash out, in addition to it being safe for my pens.
La Plume Etoile + J. Herbin = Love.
Happy Valentines Day!
