Van Dieman's are a small family business in Launceston, Tasmania, that is passionate about the environment, and crafting quality inks that are inspired from nature. Peter and Belinda Rix are the husband and wife duo that own and run Van Dieman's Ink. Both lovers of fountain pens and ink, they wanted to make this passion a full-time occupation. After retailing fountain pens in Australia together for some years, Belinda made the decision to develop their own fountain pen ink, taking inspiration from much of the beauty found in Tasmania to design each ink, and to create the artwork for our boxes and labels.
They design and mix their own bottles of fountain pen and shimmering inks in Launceston, Tasmania. These high-quality fountain pen inks have been tested for viscosity and flow quality and are suitable for all major brands of fountain pens, and are also suitable for dip pens and brushwork.
