About Van Dieman's Ink

"Welcome to Van Dieman's Ink, a small family business nestled in the heart of Tasmania. We are Peter and Belinda, a husband and wife team with a shared passion for our home's natural beauty and a love for the written word. Our journey began with a simple idea - to create a range of inks that capture the essence of Tasmania's diverse landscapes and unique flora and fauna. Today, we are proud to say that our inks are loved by fountain pen enthusiasts, artists, and hobbyists around the world. Our inks are more than just a writing medium; they are a celebration of Tasmania's natural wonders. From the vibrant hues of our Birds of a Feather collection to the deep, rich tones of our Underwater series, each ink tells a unique story of Tasmania's natural beauty. We handcraft our inks in small batches, using 95% Australian ingredients and a family recipe honed over the years. Our chemistry background from university has helped us create inks with unique characteristics - high or low saturation, wet or dry, shimmered or unshimmered, and even multi-tonal inks that change colour in the light. Running Van Dieman's Ink as a married couple has its challenges, but we believe that our shared passion and commitment to quality have been key to our success. We are hands-on in every aspect of our business, from creating the inks to bottling, labelling, and shipping them out to our customers. We take pride in being a small, Australian-owned business that values authenticity, craftsmanship, and a love for nature. Looking ahead, we are excited about the future of Van Dieman's Ink. We plan to continue creating new ink series and are exploring the possibility of creating our own notebooks. We also enjoy collaborating with pen stores and are always open to new partnerships. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We invite you to explore our collections and experience the beauty of Tasmania through our inks. Whether you're jotting down notes, creating a piece of art, or simply enjoying the act of writing, we hope that our inks bring a touch of Tasmania's natural beauty to your day."
