J. Herbin has announced the new color for the 1670 Anniversary Ink line and it’s gorgeous! Caroube de Chypre is a dark brown with light red reflections and sparkling gold effect.
It is said that J. Herbin was very fond of dried carob pods and that is the reason he lived so long! As the other merchants sailing the Mediterranean sea, he would pick them up in Cyprus, on his way back home. The carob bean is the fruit of the carob tree and was cultivated in the Mediterranean countries since ancient times. Carob pods are known for their great therapeutic properties and were marketed throughout Europe as the “black gold of Cyprus”. This new Anniversary ink is called “Caroube de Chypre” because of its intense and deep brown with a hint of red, and of course its gold specks.

Caroube de Chypre will be available late July.
