About the CROSS partnership with the IT Lounge at TIFF Festival: The CROSS brand of fine writing instruments is one of America’s most beloved and historic luxury brands. Dating back to the California Gold Rush of 1849, their first writing instruments were created when gold was plentiful and the ability to create this class of consumer goods became a reality. Since its launch, the CROSS brand has been synonymous with achievement and the pursuit of human potential.
CROSS has asked guests of the lounge to let them know–via one of their fine writing instruments–“How I’ve Made My Mark”.
The story of the CROSS brand begins in 1846 when artisan Richard Cross, in partnership with his son Alonzo Townsend Cross revolutionized fine writing instruments. Their early mark of entrepreneurial excellence included tools refined through more than 100 patents and accented by the spoils of the California gold rush. Still positioned to set the bar for what it means to symbolize achievement, human potential and usable luxury, CROSS seeks to provide those possessing extraordinary vision and a strong entrepreneurial spirit with the tools needed to make their mark.
