Coccoina glue


A classic of Italian culture, Coccoina glue has been a faithful companion to Italian schoolchildren since 1927, when it was created in the workshops of Aldo Balma. Its recognisable packaging and sweet almond smell have not changed since then, and are still present in classrooms across the Italian peninsula.

A classic of Italian stationery, culture and craftsmanship, the Coccoina glue has been used throughout Italy by generations of schoolchildren. Non-toxic, solvent-free, it is safe to ingest. Coccoina glue is suitable for gluing materials such as paper, photographic paper and fabrics.

Its almond smell is so pleasant that some former Italian schoolchildren even told us they had already eaten it… ! Of course, even if Coccoina glue does not present any risk in case of ingestion, we recommend that you do not confuse it with spreads.

This eco-friendly glue made in Italy is part of our “Archivio” stationery collection, dedicated to Italian craftsmanship. Find all our other stationery items from this exceptional heritage here.


Capacity: 125g.
The Coccoina glue is a solvent-free glue with a pleasant almond aroma. Coccoina glue has been manufactured in Italy since its creation in 1927. The whole packaging of the glue, its small metal pot and its brush, are also made in Italy, in the same factory than the glue.


At the beginning of the 19th century in France, glue sold in glass jars was a great success. That’s why in the early 1920s, Aldo Balma decided to come up with a 100% Italian alternative: he invented an unbreakable aluminium packaging with a brush holder in the middle, and added a delicious almond scent that was immediately imprinted on the collective mind. The recipe is simple, and legend has it that the first pots of Coccoina were cooked in Aldo Balma’s own kitchen: it is a mixture of potato starch, water, glycerine and almond oil. When the paste is ready, it is decanted into the aluminium pots for a month, after which it is ready for use.

Almost a century later, Italian children still use Coccoina glue at school, and its success has not waned. You can find it here in its original aluminium pot, whose design has not changed since its creation.

You can find a selection of vintage Coccoina advertisements on the “historical stationery” page of our Pinterest account.
