We are all moving toward a more digitally equipped world, and everything we do today is either on our laptops or phones. As technology is becoming more and more adaptive we have moved on to voice commands that are letting us save time and energy for things that matter. The AI world seems to have taken over most of our lives, and we don’t seem to mind, as most of our day is spent with one gadget or the other. From smartwatches to automatic cars, everything is designed to make your life more convenient. The world around us is changing so fast and if you are wondering if writing tools and writing itself will become obsolete, you might not be alone.
But let us not forget that the old-world charm of paper and handwritten notes is not lost on the world yet, which is why many prefer to own an actual book over a digital version. Wouldn’t it make you feel special if someone is taking out time from their busy day, to send you a handwritten note? In a time when even signatures have become digital, people are craving to receive handwritten notes from people and hence it has become a luxury.
Beyond the necessity of taking notes, journaling, or improving memory, the act of writing is rapidly also becoming an art. Calligraphy is an art of writing that you and I are seeking to master, in order to add another feather to our hats.
When the act of writing itself is turning into a luxury, then why should the tools of writing be left behind? The pen that holds the power to unlock your mind, is a tool worthy of being as exclusive as it gets, and The Luxury Collection lists some of the most exclusive, limited-edition, hand-crafted pens that you should own if you are a collector!
