A limited edition Volumes release is announced every quarter. Each celebrates a unique piece of history, and each sells out quickly.

The Ideas:

In June of 1966, George Harrison met maestro Ravi Shankar in Bath.

Harrison asked Ravi to teach him how to play the sitar, a task Ravi agreed to only after considerable hesitation.

Their collaboration resulted in an explosion in the popularity of classical Indian music and culture around the world.

The Blackwing 3 is a tribute to Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday. It features an extra-firm graphite and a matte turmeric finish accented with a pattern inspired by one of Ravi’s iconic sitars. 

The pattern prominently features the ॐ (Om), a sacred Sanskrit symbol with three phonetic components that correlate to the waking, dream, and unconscious states of being. 

You can find out more about the Ravi Shankar Foundation and their mission to "preserve the diversity of cultures and richness of their arts" alongside listening to some of his music.
