Founded by Francesco Pineider in 1774, Italian brand Pineider holds a storied history. Supplying politicians, writers and poets — from Napoleon to Lord Byron to Stendhal — the small brand, which launched with specialisation in stationary and the production of artistic postcards, soon swelled into a multifaceted company purveying leather goods, writing instruments and imported
modern fountain pens from the United States. Today Pineider's reputation for high quality leather and stationary endures — it is the chosen brand of the Italian government for official gift giving, and continues to stand as an international ambassador for Italian design.
