The striking design of this beautiful Smithsonian Mende Textile Pen is adapted from an early 20th-century blanket (kpopko) woven by the men of the Mende community of Sierra Leone. Superbly balanced, this brass-barrel ballpoint pen deploys with a twist. The Smithsonian sunburst adorns the cap and clip. Handsome Smithsonian gift boxing. Takes widely available Schmidt refills.
Our pen faithfully replicates the colors and the nine patterned strips of this particular kpopko, which is curated by our National Museum of African Art.
5.25"l. x 0.5"dia., 0.6 oz.
