Maki-e is a very complex Japanese lacquer painting technique, renowned for its beauty and artistry. In the process, the rare Japanese lacquer Urushi is applied to the fountain pen in a multitude of layers which are polished repeatedly. The design is drawn with colored lacquer onto the surface. This technique is called Togidashi-Maki-e. In addition, the artist can mix charcoal powder and gold powder into the lacquer, so that the pattern of the design is raised above the surface:

If your thumb glides over the painting, you will feel the difference. This is the so-called Taka-Maki-e technique.

For the Pelikan fountain pen model "Ivy and Komon", the Maki-e artist has harmoniously blended both techniques.

The limited edition "Ivy and Komon" shows the climber plant. Ivy combined with Komon that is a very beautiful and traditional pattern. The evergreen Ivy is often written about in poems because of its glossy, beautiful autumn leaves, and was often used as decoration, covering the exterior walls of buildings.

The so-called Komon is one of the traditional Japanese kimono patterns in which the same pattern is dyed repeatedly in the same direction. The maki-e fountain pen "Ivy and Komon" has brilliant orange ivy covering the fountain pen, and in combination with the Komon patterns, it depicts a beautiful autumn.
