To celebrate its 130th years of innovations and exeptional craftsmanship, PARKER has created the Duofold Limited Edition, the Craft of Traveling with 1,300 in homage of its founder George S. Parker and his passion to discover the world.



George used to begin his journey by crossing the Atlantic to Europe and then moving continuously toward the far East. He went on his first trip in Paris in 1900 to discover the wonders of the Exposition Universelle. His passion for travel took him around the world, from Egypt to South America, or China where he traveled many times to purchase traditional iron paintings in Wuhu, in the Anhui province. Orient fostered his imagination and creation, giving birth to the Mandarin Yellow Duofold colorway, inspired from a vase George once found in Japan.



Only 1300 numbered pieces of the 2018 Duofold Limited Edition will be produced, as a testament to its 130th anniversary (Parker was founded in 1888).
