It takes 365 days to make a celluloid fountain pen: this is one of the high points of a company that represents the very best Italian tale about writing instruments.
The company was established in Bologna in 1925. Its founder was Armando Simoni, a man with great technical know-how, who was an expert in Greek culture. Simoni created a series of models that were very new in terms of both aesthetics and technology, objects that are still today considered to be great classics, including, among others, the "Penna del Dottore," which comes with a tiny clinical thermometer hidden inside the body of the pen. Omas writing tools, with their timeless design, elegance, are distinguished by the craftsmanship that's applied in the company workshop in Bologna. Each Omas fountain pen is the result of a multitude of sophisticated operations: it takes more than 365 days to make a celluloid fountain pen. The natural materials used, whether they be cotton resin, celluloid, wood, titanium, gold or silver, guarantee that the pen is remarkably light, elegantly shiny and, above all, that it has a surprisingly pleasant feel to it. The twelve-sided Arte Italiana and triangular 360 models represent the brand's icons. Omas' Limited Editions are truly works of art, celebrating both great historical-cultural events and special places.
