Victorian textile mills used hardwood bobbins and spindles to manage heaps of thread on their vast looms. Over time the textile industry changed and virtually all of the mills closed. For the past thirty years, Ma’s Bobbin Works of Maine has been reporposing antique hardwood bobbins into nostalgic and decorative reminders of our industrial heritage.
These one-of-a-kind ballpoint pens are made from real spindles that were rescued from a shuttered textile mill. Supplies of these unique pens are limited.
