A better world begins with education. I truly believe that all children deserves quality education and a functional school. In support of UNICEF‘s education programmes, Montblanc introduces the 2013 Montblanc “Signature For Good” Collection. You’ll find special edition writing instruments, jewellery pieces and leather accessories all feature a unique brick design to symbolize the joint effort of building a better future for all children and their communities, through the schools for Africa and Asia initiatives and programmes in Latin America. Available from March 1st, 2013 to March 31st, 2014, Montblanc will contribute part of its proceeds in hopes of raising at least $1.5 million dollars to UNICEF‘s education programmes. This collection is also supported by Academy award winning actress and producer Hilary Swank who travelled to Ethiopia with Montblanc International CEO Lutz Bethge, with the mission to witness both the progress achieved to date with the funds raised by Montblanc and the challenges that remain to be overcome in the area of education.
For this special Montblanc “Signature For Good” Collection, the design of the Meisterstück has been revisited with unique detailing. Available as a Classique Fountain Pen, Rollerball, and Ballpoint Pen and in the bolder LeGrand size, the black precious resin writing instrument features a cap top ring designed with the symbolic rectangular brick pattern. The blue sapphire set in this ring is inspired by UNICEF’s blue colour and the work it accomplishes to improve children’s lives.
The leather used by Montblanc for the Signature for Good collection is Italian full-grain printed calfskin to create handcrafted leather wallets, cardholders, a pen pouch and notebook with blue lining decorated with the symbolic brick design. The distinctive pattern on the leather is a series of diagonal lines.
Embellished with a sapphire, the collection extended to cuff links with reversible surfaces of onyx and stainless steel, bracelets and key rings.
