Catherine D’Amours’ Favorite Thing: The Chinese Bamboo Pen

At Pointbarre, we love hand-writing and sketching. We go organic before digital in our creative process. We secretly collect everything related to pencils and brushes.

Calligraphy and different printing methods are part of our daily lives. This antique Chinese bamboo pen is still perfect. It is simple, made of raw material and traditional and refined.
