At Hurlestone, we love pen accessories!
The Hurlestone name
The Hurlestone name comes from an early ancestor who lived in late 16th century Dorsetshire, England. It had a certain charm and appeal and being a family name made it more meaningful to me.
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.
Hurlestone pen accessories represent quality, beauty, and function that's definitely not ordinary!
My hobby collecting fountain pens began in 2014 and has since expanded to include ink and all manner of fountain pen friendly accessories and stationery. Needing something to protect my pens while travelling, I decided to create a pen pouch that would do the job and look great at the same time. Not only does it hold my favourite pens, it has a pocket on the back to carry spare ink cartridges or other bits and pieces, so I could truly be on the go!
Now that my pens could travel in style, I needed to protect them when they were on my desk. Making a small cushion they could rest on seemed like a great idea and the pen pillow was born. Now there is a small pen pillow permanently on my desk nestling my favourite workhorse pen(s).
Since then I have added pen kimonos, pen rolls/wraps of various sizes and notebook covers.
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 Shop and are inspired to purchase a little style for your pens too
