Where do the BaumInvest pens come from?
The small town of Sarchi in Costa Rica is known for its Artensanía, for the many small handicraft businesses that produce all kinds of artistic products. Vinicio Marín runs one of the family businesses. For more than 30 years, he has been producing works of art and souvenirs from local woods, which are extremely popular with tourists, but are also exported to the USA and Europe.
He has designed his own product for BaumInvest: the wooden biros. For this, he used wood species that also grow in the BaumInvest forests: cocobolo, guapinol, roble. The pens are handmade, the refills are interchangeable, and the respective tree species are engraved in the grip. “The wooden pens are comfortable to hold,” says the artist. “Moreover, they convince with their beautiful grains and a nice writing feeling.”
