Montblanc has unveiled their 2013 Montblanc “Signature For Good” Collection, a special edition of writing instruments, jewellery pieces and leather accessories.
The new products feature a unique brick design illustrating the joint effort of building a better future for all children and their communities by improving access to quality education, including the construction of schools – brick by brick. For every piece in the “Signature for Good” Collection sold between 1 March 2013 and 31 March 2014, Montblanc will donate part of its proceeds to raise at least $1.5 million to UNICEF’s education programmes which focus on the most vulnerable children across schools in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
With a heritage deeply rooted in the culture of writing, Montblanc has always been committed to the support of education and literacy. For almost ten years, Montblanc has taken an active role in backing UNICEF’s efforts to enable more children to learn how to read and write, with several global initiatives which have raised in excess of $5 million to date.
For this special Montblanc “Signature For Good” Collection, the design of the Meisterstück has been revisited with unique detailing. Available as a Classique Fountain Pen, Rollerball, and Ballpoint Pen and in the bolder LeGrand size, the black precious resin writing instrument features a cap top ring designed with the symbolic rectangular brick pattern. The sapphire set in this ring is inspired by UNICEF’s blue colour and the work it accomplishes to improve children’s lives.
Other pieces in the collection include handcrafted leather wallets made from Italian full-grain printed calfskin, cardholders, a pen pouch, as well as a notebook with blue lining decorated with the symbolic brick design. Cuff links with reversible surfaces of onyx and stainless steel, bracelets and key rings, are all embellished with a sapphire, make up the jewellery selection.
By registering the number on the product at www.montblanc.com/signatureforgood, the owner of the piece can monitor the progress of the initiative and find out the many ways in which UNICEF is improving educational opportunities for children.
The Montblanc “Signature For Good” Collection is now available in Montblanc boutiques worldwide.
