Taccia Indigo Jeans on Leuchtturm1917


In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Indigo Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a dark blue with a wet flow, shading and sheen. The sheen is easily visible in normal writing when it catches the light at the right angle. However, I don’t see any sheen on Leuchtturm1917 paper. There is also a little feathering and some bleedthrough.

Rings of colour residue

Cleaning a pen filled with this ink is more troublesome. It leaves faint rings of colour residue that can be remove with a gentle scrubbing with a cotton bud. This may a deal-breaker for some.

I really like this shade of blue and like it enough to put up with the more involved cleaning process. This is a keeper for me.
