Taccia Black Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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.

Taccia Navy Blue Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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 Traveler’s Company paper, there is shading and when the light catches it at the right angle, the sheen can be seen in normal writing. I did not notice any feathering or bleedthrough.

The ink is an unsaturated mid-range blue with shading and no sheen. I didn’t notice any feathering or bleedthrough on Rhodia paper. I think the shade of blue matches the colour of blue jeans. Bravo to Taccia for nailing the colour so accurately.

Taccia Grey Jeans on Leuchtturm1917

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. This ink shows up better on Leuchtturm1917 paper but I still find it too light to read comfortably in less than ideal light conditions. It would probably do best in a wet or broad nib.

Taccia Indigo Jeans on Midori MD

Ink

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. There is no feathering or bleedthrough on Midori MD paper.

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.

Taccia Dark Washed Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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 a dark blue / blue-black colour with shading and displays a noticeable red sheen on some papers. There is shading and a tiny bit of sheen on Leuchtturm paper, but it is difficult to see the sheen. The ink has a wet flow.

The ink takes a little more effort to clean as it leaves a bit of colour residue behind. I was not able to flush it away with water and had to use a cotton bud to gently scrub it away.

This ink colour makes me think of a bruise. But not just an ordinary bruise, but a magnificent one ranging from deep purple to a blue so dark that it looked almost black. Because of its sheening properties, I think the ink will look good in a wet nib.
