The first luxury brand dedicated to culture, Assouline began with the belief that a book artfully crafted and highly considered in its visual content can open our eyes and minds.
For over two decades, guided by their passion for knowledge, culture, and travel, they have extended their vision to create all that can be desired in a chic library, including lavishly illustrated books and special editions that become unique decorative accessories.

Celebrating the spirit of true craftsmanship of Assouline and Montegrapa, Maison Assouline Dubai unveiled a one-of-a-kind engraved pen along with a dedicated display of the iconic Italian pen manufacturer’s limited-edition collections.

The pen celebrates the spirit of exemplary design and craftsmanship of both brands – and is a true reflection of the level of craftsmanship that goes into the Montegrappa writing instruments. Adding to Assouline’s Cabinet de Curiositiés, every Montegrappa instrument tells a story and showcases the brand’s rich heritage and expertise in designing and manufacturing handcrafted exquisite pens since 1912, Montegrappa recently welcomed their new boutique in the UAE – at The Dubai Mall, Fashion Avenue.

The boutique offers discerning customers to design their own unique customized writing instruments, bearing family emblems, calligraphic artwork, the portrait of a loved one, or any design element that one wishes to carry.

Montegrappa has produced many special edition collections in the past, celebrating some of the world’s most renowned artists, writers, and historical figures, all recognized for their outstanding contribution to mankind.
Nelson Mandela, Khalil Gibran, Ernest Hemingway and Salvador Dali are among the most notable figures who have all had collections designed to commemorate them.
