The 1670 Collection celebrates the rich life and adventures of Herbin, an enterprising French sailor of the mid-17th century. While he was in the employ of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales, he made a number of voyages to India, collecting ingredients and formulas for his sealing wax and inks.
The deep blue ink with a golden sheen recalls the sea voyages of Herbin to the Mughal Empire of India. In those days India was a primary supplier of indigo dye. Bleu Ocean takes its inspiration from those adventurous journeys.
