Graf von Faber-Castell for Bentley
A passion for unrivalled craftsmanship and unmistakable design unites British luxury car brand Bentley and fine writing instrument manufacturer Graf von Faber-Castell. A collaboration between the two brands, this new collection of writing instruments combines Bentley’s legendary spirit with the elegance of Graf von Faber-Castell for a writing experience beyond compare.
The new collection includes a Fountain Pen with a gold nib, a Ballpoint Pen and a Rollerball Pen, each with an exquisite ebony barrel – one of the most opulent and hardest precious woods in the world. The metalwork of each pen is platinum-plated. The magnum-sized gold nib of the fountain pen is crafted in a combination of 18-carat gold and iridium to create a tip that delivers a smooth and precise writing experience and is what makes the pen so special. The natural distinctions in the lightly textured black wood of the ebony barrels help to illustrate the individual character of each pen, ensuring that it becomes intimately familiar to individual owners.
Each pen is finished with inimitable Bentley design elements. Each cap in the series is adorned with the iconic Bentley ‘B’, surrounded by filigree knurling. The distinctive Bentley diamond pattern decorates the platinum-plated front and end-piece of the pens in the form of elaborately milled rings.
The new collection will be available to order via shop.BentleyMotors.com from the 1st September 2019. View the full Graf von Faber-Castell for Bentley range here.
Crafted in Italy from sumptuous cognac leather, the Heritage Leather Holdall features fluting details echoing the seat designs of Bentleys from the 1920s. The chunky zip compartment at the bottom of the bag adds a modern edge to this vintage-inspired classic. A matching Heritage Leather Jacket for men is also available.
The Crooked Handle Classic Umbrella is designed for the most debonair of men. It’s hand-stitched leather handle and distinctive matrix grille pattern on the canopy underside are evocative of iconic Bentley car designs.
The Bentley ‘B’ Cufflinks and Bentley Car Key USB Stick might be the perfect size for stocking-fillers, but these gloriously elegant gifts embrace the refined and modern style for which Bentley is noted, and will not disappoint the well-heeled Bentley Boy.
Fashioned from the finest, softest Lamb Nappa and lined with 100% cashmere, the Ladies Diamond Pattern Gloves are a highlight of the Bentley Collection. Embroidered with a diamond-quilt pattern and finished to perfection to keep hands comfortably snug during the cold winter months.
The ideal companion for festive season parties, the Italian-made leather Diana B Clutch is a timeless classic. The diamond-quilted interior contains a mobile phone slip pocket and the detachable chain adds to versatility for wear. Available in elegant Beluga black and contemporary Rich Plum.
For proud new owners of the Bentley Jewellery collection – a range of diamond-set fine jewellery pieces crafted in 18k white and rose gold, inspired by Bentley – a safe new home exists: the leather Jewellery Case. A handsome addition to any dressing table and the ideal gift for the jewellery lover, the case contains a large base compartment and two trays for rings and smaller items.
For the home
For the discerning eye in homewares, what better gift than the Knurling Photo Frame, which epitomises classic simplicity. A subtle nod to Bentley’s signature design aesthetic is given through the engraved knurling detail around the edge of the silver-plated frame.
The Flying B Bottle Stopper is a spectacular finishing touch to any seasonal tipple opened over the festive period and is the ideal gift for friends and family who will be hosting and entertaining.
Surprise a loved one with the Wings Emblem Blanket, woven in luscious lambswool and featuring a jacquard wings emblem and distinctive matrix grille pattern border. The supremely soft and comforting blanket is the perfect seasonal statement for the home.
Inspiring the Bentley Boys and Girls of the future, the Bentley Ride On Car and Wooden Garage are exciting and hands-on playthings for toddlers and small children.

The wooden garage features three storeys, a heliport, manual elevator, fuel pump and washing station to enthuse the most vivid imaginations.
The Birkin Teddy Bear is inspired by Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin, perhaps the most famous of the “Bentley Boys”. Sporting his very own signature “Birkin Spot” scarf and Bentley club jacket, this teddy is a friendly face to add to any playroom or bedroom soft toy collection. The Bentley ‘B’ embroidered on the sole of his foot will set him apart from other furry teddy companions.
