Papier Plume - New Orleans Collection Fountain Pen Ink - Mardi Gras Indians Purple

Papier Plume will release five new inks in the coming months of 2016, celebrating the rich colors and history of New Orleans, Louisiana.  We hope that each of these colors will allow you to take home memories of New Orleans and let you share a little of it with others through your writing.

The fourth color that we a releasing is Mardi Gras Indians Purple!

When we decided to make an ink honoring The Mardi Gras Indians we could have really chosen any color, but Purple is a special color for NOLA and it’s associations with mystery, magic, and royalty made it perfect. The Mardi Gras Indians have been around since the mid 19th century, but they didn’t really start wearing the extravagant suits that they are so known for now until the 1960’s.

These inks are limited in quantity.  There will only be 60 one ounce bottles sold of this color on this run.  A maximum of 4 allowed per order.
