About us

We Love Pens is dedicated to bringing you the full range of Kaweco writing instruments and accessories. We are a father and daughter business, and we launched We Love Pens in 2016 to run alongside our well-established business distributing Kaweco in the UK and showcase the whole range. We also sell Retro 51 pens and accessories.

Kaweco is a well-established German pen manufacturer, who have been in the pen business since the late 1880s.  In the 1980s, the brand had been mothballed for some time, and Michael Gutberlet - a lifelong pen and, in particular, Kaweco pen enthusiast - bought the Kaweco brand and machinery.  Since then, Michael has grown Kaweco, been joined in the business by his family and Kaweco has gone from strength to strength; combining its classic 1930s style and precision German engineering with modern twists on style.  The results are a stunning range of pens, pencils and accessories.

Retro 1951 was started in 1990 by George Kartsotis in Richardson, Texas USA. His first nice pen was a gift for a job promotion, and with it he recognized the potential of special gifts. George explains: “We’re a gift company. We are selling the accoutrements of life. A pen is not a pen, it’s a vehicle to an end – a way of showing who you are.” Always on the lookout for the latest trend, Retro merges current colour and design fashions with the vintage and quality standards of ““the good ol’ days.” Every Retro piece is designed with that nostalgic, early American-dream in mind, combined with their core philosophy and motto -"Life is too short to carry an ugly pen!"
