Straw Pen / Pen

Straw Pen

Have you ever came across annoying moments of your pen rolling off the edge of the table just to find the nib of your pen damaged? Inspired by the stretchable and bendable section of a drinking straw, “Straw pen”enables you to bend its upper body freely to suit your grip for comfortable writing, furthermore act as a stopper to prevent your pen from rolling off the edge of a table. In addition to its bendable design, is its stretchable function that shortens the entire pen’s length, saving inventory costs by accommodating larger packing quantities for shipping. Strawpen would bring about a new fun experience in writing.
