Where centuries of experience meet forward thinking
Born out of an era of great progress and technical advance
ment, Maison Montblanc was founded in 1906 in the port
city of Hamburg. As the engineer August Eberstein and the
banker Alfred Nehemias, later joined by merchant Claus
Johannes Voss, were inspired and united by the pioneering
spirit of their time, the three founders started their venture
with the production of groundbreaking safety fountain pens.
In a seamless union of innovation, functionality and elegan ce,
the company perfected the creation of fine writing ins
truments and quickly grew to worldwide renown. Their
efforts subsequently culminated in the creation of the first
Meisterstck fountain pen, which remains an iconic writing
instrument to this day.

into the areas of leather craft, watchmaking and fine jewel
lery. As early as 1926, Montblanc introduced the first leather

We believe that the written word has the power to change the world.
This is why Montblanc, in partnership with UNICEF, aims to improve
learning conditions for over 5 million children through quality learning
materials and better teaching. To pass on the gift of writing, Montblanc
extends the cooperation beyond writing instruments and has created
a collection of large and small leather goods. Each purchase increases
the amount donated to UNICEF.
The Montblanc Meisterstck Selection UNICEF takes its inspira
tion from six characters handwritten by children in six different world
languages the first letters they learn at school. These letters can be
found in the blue jacquard lining of bags, wallets and pocket accessories.
Together with a unique combination of black printed and black plain
leather and a touch of blue leather inside small leather goods, it has
become a collection which speaks through its subtle, yet distinctive elegance.
A belt with the same black printed leather completes the collection.
Crafted from black Italian full-grain cowhide, the blue lining of this unique document case is adorned with the UNICEF alphabet motif. The adjustable and detachable nylon strap makes it the perfect business companion.
