We designed our Feadán <Fa-don> pen range so routine writing tasks become infinitely more enjoyable, utilising a simple and minimalist form we pay homage to the beauty of the wood we craft from, the woods utterly original character gives certainty that each Feadán is unique. Feadán is the Irish word for tube and the shape and function of a tube is to allow unfettered movement within it, a Feadán is a tactile conduit enabling the unfettered flow of feelings to paper for the intimate writing task that is anything but routine when words and emotion are so expressive that they need to be shared as has always been the way in Irish literary heritage, holding a pen made from wood grown in Ireland is a beautiful way to connect with that heritage.
The Irish oak tree is a much-loved in Celtic mythology for its strength and longevity. Known as the ‘King of the Forest’, for thousands of years, Druids have worshipped the Irish Oak as their most sacred tree. The word Druid comes from the Celtic word for Oak, ‘Duir’. The Druids also believed that the Oaktree is host to the strength and energy of their gods and so to catch a falling Oak leaf brings good luck and prosperity.
In Irish mythology, the Irish Oak symbolises truth, courage and wisdom. This derives from the Ancient Celts, who observed the Oak’s incredible strength, beauty, and noble presence. Irish oak has been used for hundreds of years to build and decorate state buildings, churched and even the longboats in Viking times.
The tubular design is very tactile, holding the pen has a playfulness to it and lining up the wood grain each time the cap is posted is fun and addictive.
Laying or standing on a desk, resting on a note pad at a meeting the Feadán will be noticed, but as with all good design, form must follow function so we installed an all Swiss-made rollerball refill as standard to provide the best writing experience.
