Ajoto

BRAND

Putting pen to paper. It’s somewhat a laborious task, but the labor has virtue and substance. Ajoto makes a beautiful rollerball pen for these important moments, when an exciting idea pops up in your mind, or an important document is being signed. As the ink flows onto the paper, it marks the beginning of a venture. The weight you feel on your hand, the strokes that you start to compose, the sounds from the rollerball hitting the paper. All become a pleasurable ritual.

Many products often sacrifice craftsmanship for expediency, merely because it’s faster, cheaper and easier. But a pen should be a beautiful tool for life. True to their values, Ajoto is keen to showcase the people, places and processes in the production journey. It is intriguing to see a product that speaks of its origins, traditions and cultures. It is even more intriguing to hold it in one’s hand and use it to let ideas take form.

PEN

This is a thoughtful pen. Your intention shows with each stroke from thin to thick as the versatile medium point glides smoothly across the page. When not in use, the pure and classic design is a perfect ornament for the desk. It comes in brass or aluminum. At 50 grams, the weight of the brass pen feels well balanced and comfortable, while the aluminum pen is significantly lighter. Both have a finely spun finish, but brass will oxidize over time and develop an elegant patina.

It is nice to keep things well protected and organized. This is why the pen pouch pairs perfectly with the pen. The vegetable tanned leather will also develop a beautiful patina over time.

WALLET

Ajoto makes a simple wallet with the same vegetable tanned leather as the pen pouch. Thin, small and lightweight, it is good for carrying basic necessities. It features just enough compartments with v-shaped slots for easy card access.
