In 2021 the Japanese brand SAKURA celebrates its 100th birthday! In honor of this anniversary year, the month of February at ROYAL TALENS is dedicated to Sakura with a special edition of the Pigma Micron sets: "Black & Gold Edition" (sets of 3 or 6 black fineliners in different thicknesses from 0.2 to 0.5mm).
The black and gold elements from these pens pay an homage to the Art Deco movement that took off simultaneously with the establishment of Sakura in 1921. Many original Sakura packagings from the early years were designed with iconic elements from that defining art movement. The name SAKURA refers to the beloved Japanese cherry blossom, a symbol of fragile beauty. The ultimate persuit of perfection and high quality has since been consistent in SAKURA’s colouring and drawing materials.
In addition, ROYAL TALENS organizes a creative competition in which you can participate monthly until the 31th of December 2021: Create a work of art with your favorite SAKURA products inspired by the iconic country of Japan and win a trip to Tokyo in 2022 or one of the three SAKURA prize packages.
