"Factory Green" is a Traveler's Company limited edition collection of some of their favorite brass writing instruments redesigned with a light teal green brassing coating. This series was inspired by a shade of green paint that is commonly used in manufacturing plants, on industrial printing presses and along the floors, doors and shelves in many factories in Japan. One example in particular comes from a well-used shelf in the Traveler's affiliated Design Phil Nagareyama Plant that has been used to store a large number of printing ink cans; over the years, the paint has faded, chipped and stained in certain spots and just as a Traveler's Notebook does, has become an embodiment of time, work, memories and journeys. The Factory Green coating that comes with this series is meant to echo the idea that history lives within our objects.
Brass Rollerball Pen in the limited-edition Factory Green color. Easily converted into a compact “carry around” size and elongated for easy writing, BRASS ROLLERBALL PEN also complemented with a high-quality finish created by skilled Japanese craftsmen. With years of experience in the production of writing instruments under their belts, our craftspeople take the utmost care with each element, from the click when retracting the nib to the feel of the pen in your hand, to achieve the functionality and comfort that are essential for stationery that will be used every day.
Something that sets this pen apart from other rollerball pens is the way fountain pen cartridges can be used—for example, you could combine the distinctive blue-black color of fountain pen ink with the smooth feel and clear, tasteful lines of a rollerball.
The top of the pen has a ring for attaching a hook or string, so you can clip it to your bag as a key holder or customize it using beads and other items – let your imagination run free! The ring can also be removed for a clip-free pen if you prefer. You can put it on TRAVELER’S notebook Pen Holder or just put in your pocket.
Its body is made of brass and painted in the original color. As you use this pen, the paint gradually fades and that will make the brass more visible giving it a vintage taste. And this pen has a clip and cap with the distinctive texture of iron, to match with aged brass color. It may look like stain or uneven surface. By a long time use the change in color lessen the concern.

ABOUT BRASS PRODUCTS
BRASS changes its color and texture as you use it, and every single BRASS item changes differently depending on the user and his/her environment. This is something unique to and wonderful about brass. As the copper within the brass oxidizes, your brass item might develop some verdigris, a kind of rust. Take it easy, since it does no harm to you. If you want the original gloss of the brass back, just try polishing the item with metal polish. Enjoy and cherish the highly nuanced color hue and texture only brass can give you.
