Hurlestone cares about your pens
Hurlestone - Handmade in New Zealand
Hurlestone pen accessories are high quality, beautiful, individually handcrafted
New Zealand made products.
Pen pouches are functional and strong - as an everyday carry for your pens and cartridges that will last the distance; but also, beautiful and soft - made from a wide range of upholstery fabrics and velvet, standing out from the ordinary,
showcasing and protecting your pens.
Pen pillows are soft, beautiful, and washable, with your pens nestled on them ready for you to use,
safe from other items on your work area.
Pen kimonos are a great way to carry your favourite pen with you wherever you go - bright and functional
with internal padding for the comfort and safety of your pen.
Pen rolls/wraps for 6, 8 or 10 pens for those that like a more extensive every day carry. With an open top,
they can be used as a pen caddy for easy access while you work.
Notebook covers are a simple design (some with a small pocket for your pen or other important bits) available in a range of fabrics and sizes. Get one to match your pen pouch or pen roll.
Hurlestone pen accessories represent quality, beauty, and practicality that's definitely not ordinary!
My hobby collecting fountain pens began in 2014 and has since expanded into a collection of sorts which you will see in some of the photos I take for social media and on the website. Wanting something different to put my pens in I took some time (a few months actually) and created a two pen pouch out of some fabric that was lurking in the cupboard. Refining my idea, I began making them out of upholstery fabrics and velvet which is what you see in my shop today. Not only do they look great, they are durable and will last a long time.
If you're like me, you wont like your pens wandering around your work area and getting lost (or hurt!) so I made a velvet pen pillow to keep them in one spot (and safe from other things on my desk). The pillows are soft and flattish with loose weave stuffing in them so pens are nestled and won't roll off. I now have one permanently on my desk with my current rotation pens resting comfortably on it.
Since I began Hurlestone I've added pen kimonos, pen rolls/wraps of various sizes and notebook covers to the range.
How are Hurlestone accessories made?
All Hurlestone products are made by me in a workroom I have set up in my home. I have two sewing machines (older, heavy ones - good for sewing upholstery fabrics) that I use to make all the products you see on the website.
Each item is individually cut and sewn and while I have a small stock of some items on hand, the majority is made to order
so it might take a couple of days to get it in the mail to you.
Once the product is made I check it, tag it, wrap it and send it out to you.
I hope you enjoy browsing the website and are inspired to purchase a little style for your pens too.
