Re-pen / pen


The beauty of Re-Pen lies in how it marries sustainability with low-cost. It is made solely out of recycled Kraft paper . Inspired by the simplicity of the quill pen, Re-Pen is formed by a single piece of Kraft paper. This eliminates many manufacturing processes .

With a 2-dimensional diamond-shaped design, the Re-Pen
can form a compact array on a piece of paper. This minimizes
wastage during material molding. The saddled surface at the
front of Re-Pen, coupled with its elliptical body, ensure a
comfortable grip. Re-stickable adhesive is used to secure the
pen refill to facilitate refilling.
