The limited-edition Factory Green color was inspired by that manufacturing setting of the TRAVELER'S COMPANY factory in Nagareyama. Green is used for the floors, doors and shelves in many factories because it’s easy on the eye and evokes a sense of safety that provides peace of mind.
When you visit the factory, you can see that those areas of green paint have faded and even peeled in places, but this, too, is a point of pride—those flaws are the result of decades of use and represent a long history of producing TRAVELER’S notebooks and many other paper products, working diligently day after day. The factory where our brass products are made, on the outskirts of Tokyo, also uses a lot of green for machinery such as its presses and metal cutters. Oil has darkened those green machines during their years of use, but they have a beauty that is difficult to put into words.
A pencil that is suitable to carry around during one’s travels. This portable pencil requires an additional step when using it, and this makes the act of writing a little bit fun. When not in use, the shape of the pencil should make you want to fiddle with it. This pencil is made in a local factory that is located in a historical district in Japan.
