Delta dedicates the 7th Indigenous People collection to one of the most unique cultures that the world has ever known, with the Legendary Ainu of Japan’s Northernmost Island, Hokkaido. Ainu, (pronounced, “I – NOO”) means “Mankind” in the Ainu language. The Dutch sailor, Maerten Vries first discovered them in 1643. The Ainu revered the Bear, a hunter/fisher like themselves and produced artistic tributes that are highly treasured. It is believed that only a few 100 or so Pure Ainu survive today.
The production of the Ainu 2005 Special Ltd. Ed. Vermeil Fountain Pen - Fine Nib is limited to 1643 pieces worldwide. The fountain pen is lateral lever filled and features an 18kt solid gold nib; customized and engraved with a Tamasay, a ceremonial glass bead necklace passed from generation-to-generation by Ainu women. The vermeil clip offers a three-dimensional representation of the "Nipopo" (wooden baby).
