The newest addition to our Esterbrook’s Estie collection is called Scarlett. It pays tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood and the romantic leading ladies of the silver screen.
In life, poetry, and fiction the subject of love has been explored endlessly, but perhaps there is no place it’s been more analyzed than film. Leading ladies, in particular, are fascinating creatures when it comes to the ways of ardor. There are legends who need only one name: Garbo, Bacall, Marilyn, and Judy. Then there are the modern single name stars: Meg, Julia, Reese, Kate and Meryl, just to name a few who fill our screens with the comedy, peril and ecstasy of true love.
The sirens and (s)heroes of cinema romance are fierce, funny, and flawed in ways that are both fascinating and all too familiar. They have inspired wedding vows, wedding songs, breakup songs and endless journal entries, where we quote their stories to help us tell our own.
The newest Estie in our core line-up, is a tribute to all of these starlets. She’s red to symbolize love, passion, courage and action. She’s elegant, graceful, feisty and a little bit fancy. And while Rhett Butler may not give a damn for her, she’s dear to us. She’s a new love for everyone, but she reminds us of the most singular one: Scarlett.
Estie, a kind of nick name for Esterbrook, is a tribute to the brand and its storied history. Short for Esterbrook, Estie also provides a feeling of 1930s nostalgia, when phrases like dingy, dizzy, doggy and brodie were commonplace. A time when analogue pens were an integral part of life and communication for most Americans.
Times may be different, values stay. The Esterbrook Pen Company, a true American Original since 1858, is rewriting its long success story in modern times with a fresh new pen collection based on a complete rebranding. Join the revolution!
