J. Herbin

J. Herbin was established in 1670, when Louis XIV, the Sun King, was 32 years old.

Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax. His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom.

J. Herbin is also the oldest name in ink production in the world.

By 1700, the company was producing "l'Encre de la Tete Noire" followed by "Perle des Encres" (Jewel of Inks) and "l'Encre des Vaisseaux" (The Ink of Ships).

300 years later, Jewel of Inks is produced in 30 beautiful colors and a lot of other wonderful inks are available.
