The Lapis Bard Story

    Lapis Bard was established during 2012 in the UK by former executives of Conway Stewart, a well-known British Pen manufacturing company. To them it was a dream project to bring together their decades of experience and skills to produce high quality writing instruments. They were resolute to keep in mind the new age customer who aspired for practical luxury. 2013 saw the culmination of the efforts when Lapis Bard presented its first collection of fine writing instruments in the market – the Classic series. This was followed by Avant Garde series in 2014. But the pride of series that came a year later was the Windsor Collection, with custom made 14K gold nibs made by Peter Bock of Germany.


William Penn Pvt Ltd, an Indian company, having been the distributor of Lapis Bard pens since 2013, acquired the brand in 2016.


   The new owners expanded the portfolio from just pens to a wide range of accessories starting with small leather goods, cufflinks, belts to men’s leather bags.


    Lapis Bard products continue to be manufactured in partnership with facilities from around the world with a strong emphasis on design, craftsmanship and quality. William Penn as a company has been in existence since the last 16 years and is well known in India as a retailer of lifestyle accessories and fine writing instruments with over 30 company owned stores across the country.
