Taccia Light Washed Jeans on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

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

The ink is a light, unsaturated blue with shading and no sheen. This is the second lightest ink in the Taccia Jeans ink series. It is readable but not a shade of blue that I like for writing.

On World Craft Freiheit paper, there is shading, no sheen, no feathering and a little bleedthrough.

Writing Sample

Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats is from the Freshly Squeezed Collection.

The ink looks like a minty green to me. It is a lovely colour with shading and no sheen. However, in writing, I find that it often lays down too light a line and the high contrast of the shading means I have to put more effort in reading. Flow-wise, it is on the dry side. This ink would probably do better in the wetter nibs.

On World Craft Freiheit paper, there is shading, no sheen, no feathering and some bleedthrough.

Taccia Classic Blue Jeans on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

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

The ink is an unsaturated mid-range blue with a little shading and no sheen. On Freheit paper, there is no feathering and a tiny bit of bleedthrough in the title. I think the shade of blue matches the colour of blue jeans. Bravo to Taccia for nailing the colour so accurately.

Ferris Wheel Press Pink Eraser on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

Ferris Wheel Press Pink Eraser is a lovely pink colour that does resembles the colour of pink erasers. I don’t like the dry flow of the ink which can cause the pen to feel scratchy on certain papers. It has shading and no sheen. There is no feathering and a little bleedthrough on World Craft Freiheit paper.

Taccia Grey Jeans on World Craft Freheit

Ink

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

The ink is a pale blue-grey with an average flow and some shading. I feel this is pretty accurate to the colour that was seen on some types of jeans. I found the writing too light to read comfortably in less than ideal light conditions. It would probably do best in a wet or broad nib.

There is no feathering or bleedthrough on WORLD CRAFT Freheit paper.

Taccia Navy Blue Jeans on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

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

The ink is a medium shade of blue with a slight teal undertone. The ink has a wet flow and I enjoy writing with it. I think this is a lovely shade of blue that really resembles the colour of blue denim. On Freiheit paper, there is shading and no noticeable sheen. I did not notice any feathering. There is a some bleedthough in the title but none in normal writing.

Taccia Black Jeans on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

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

This is a black ink which shades from dark grey to black. I do like my black inks to be dark and black. I tried to see if there was sheen in the writing, like the other inks in the Jeans collection. However, the ink was so dark that it was hard to tell whether there was any sheen. There is no feathering and only a tiny bit of bleedthrough in the title.

Monteverde World Craft

Monteverde Fireopal on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

Monteverde Fireopal is a fiery orange. The ink has an average flow. At first glance, it looks similar to Vinta Terracotta, but on closer inspection, there are differences in the shade and saturation. The colour makes me think of a fiery sunset.

On the WORLD CRAFT Freiheit notepad, there is shading and no sheen. There are very tiny spots of bleedthrough in the print heading and none in normal writing.

Monteverde Sapphire on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

Monteverde Sapphire is a vibrant blue. It shades beautifully and has a wet flow. There is the tiniest bit of sheen in the darker areas where the ink had pooled, it is not obvious unless you are looking really hard.

There is a tiny bit of feathering on this paper and a lot of bleedthrough on this paper with this ink.

Monteverde Garnet on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

Monteverde Garnet is a lovely magenta with some shading. Like the rest of the Monteverde inks I’ve written with, it flows smoothly and I didn’t experience any problems with the ink.

On this paper, there is a bit of bleed through at the ends of the letters where the ink had pooled. I didn’t noticed any feathering.

Paper

WORLD CRAFT is a Japanese brand. I am using the Freiheit Freestyle Grid Notepad. WORLD CRAFT also makes this paper in a notebook format.

It is 21cm x 12.8cm, which makes it the same height as A5 but thinner. The page is marked on front and blank on the back. The front of the page is divided into 5mm grid made up of brown dots. Two thin brown lines, one vertical and one horizontal, divide the page in the middle.
