Vinta inks are obsessively designed and meticulously mixed in the Philippines using high quality ingredients. The Vinta inks come in a 30mL amber glass bottle and are suitable for fountain pen or calligraphy use.
Each colour has a story to tell, related to the local culture or history. In 1920, a Filipino entertainer by the name of Luis Borromeo who just returned from North America came back to the Philippines and organized what became the first Filipino bodabil company. He coined the company “vod-a-vil” which became popularly known by its Filipinized name Bodabil. Harlequin (Bodabil 1920) is a dark purple shade with strong green sheen evokes the colourful costumes of harlequin figures.
As part of the Vinta Initiative, a portion of each ink bottle sale is donated to the Teach for the Philippines Inc., which helps Filipino children access quality education.
