Having an attitude towards things requires education, knowledge and awareness. Today we all bear responsibility for what we produce or consume. Most things are not thrown away because they really are defective, but because people have grown tired of them and buy something seemingly better or new. Lamy writing instruments, on the other hand, have accompanied millions of people for years and decades.
Sustainability stands for consistent values, timeless ideas, lasting benefits and durable products. At Lamy, this is not just a promise – for us, acting sustainably is a matter of course. In the sense of lived responsibility for the environment and society, people and products, sustainability has been the principle of action of the corporate philosophy from the very beginning.
The timelessly modern aesthetics of the Lamy design combined with the highest quality has always guaranteed the most effective form of sustainability: lasting pleasure in our products and therefore their long-term use.

On the way from the small Heidelberg writing instrument factory to the market leader and brand manufacturer of international importance, the birth of the Lamy design brand in 1966 was certainly the most important milestone. But there are many more that are worth introducing with a little time travel.
