In 2008, Carlo Vazzoler wanted a good pen. Not just any old, chewed-up biro, but a solid, well-made pen that was functional and looked great in hand. Drawing on his experience working for a business that produces custom wheels for cars, he made his own pen. On that day, LOCLEN was born.
Loclen is an acronym for the founder's three children and maintains its handmade, family-owned distinction as a bespoke writing instrument manufacturer. Carlo and his son, Enrico, produce every pen in their workshop near Venice, Italy. Using milling machines and lathes, they turn gorgeous, well-engineered pens with passion.
The Electa fountain pen represents Vazzoler's most technologically advanced writing instrument.
