In a world increasingly dominated by digital communication, the simple act of penning a letter seems almost revolutionary. It's a return to a slower, more thoughtful form of expression, a respite from the relentless pace of our modern lives. Handwriting is a deeply personal act, an intimate dance of words and emotions that creates a tangible connection between sender and recipient.
The tactile sensation of a beautifully textured, handmade paper under your fingertips adds an extra layer of magic to this experience. There's an undeniable allure in the rugged charm of each sheet, the subtle imperfections that make it unique, just like the words you choose to inscribe on it.

The Symphony of Pen and Paper
To truly enhance this experience, the perfect accompaniment to Eliv Rosenkranz's handmade paper is needed – the right pen. Claudia, the founder and creative director of Eliv Rosenkranz, is a calligrapher herself. She has thoughtfully designed their paper to provide a smooth surface that brings pleasure to writing.
But what pens work best with handmade paper? Here are some of our personal favourites:
Gel Rollers: These pens glide smoothly across the paper, their ink merging beautifully with the texture of our handmade paper. Their fluidity makes them ideal for those who appreciate effortless writing.
Fountain Pens: There's a regal vintage feel that comes with using a classic fountain pen. It not only works wonderfully well with our paper, but also adds an extra layer of elegance to your writing experience.
Nibs + Inks (Specifically BRAUSE & CO No. 33M or 31M): For the calligraphy enthusiasts among us, pointed nibs with medium tips work best on our paper, allowing you to create stunning letterforms that bring your words to life.

- Household Pens: Even a simple pencil can work wonders on our paper. Its delicate strokes interact surprisingly well with the paper's texture, demonstrating that you don't always need specialized tools for a great writing experience.
While ballpoint pens do work, I would not recommend them as they tend to sink into the paper, affecting the aesthetic appeal of your writing.
Crafting a Personal Connection Through Handwriting
Handwriting is more than just a method of communication; it's a personal expression, a way to connect intimately with others, and a form of art. With the right tools in hand, your words can become a beautifully crafted masterpiece on our handmade paper.
