The word Stipula is the Latin word for straw or small stick. A small stick is in fact what the Romans used to split in sign of acceptance of a commitment more than 2000 years ago.
Here at Stipula we also continue to pledge every day our commitment for quality and accuracy in the writing instruments we manufacture and the dedicated pursuit for aesthetic and technological solutions to meet the standards of the great tradition of the fountain pen. We are proud of it and aware of the responsibility we bear.
