Founded in 1761, Faber-Castell revolutionised the pencil - taking it from a humble beginning into the world's first brand-name writing tool. Taking its name from two of Germany's oldest noble families, the production of pencils ran in the family for 6 generations. This started in a pencil workshop in Stein which remains as the company's headquarters to this day. Having run for so long, the quality of Faber-Castell is shown in its loyal customers, with a recommendation from Vincent Van Gogh himself.
Now a worldwide name, Faber-Castell is the world's largest pencil manufacturer with production in 9 countries, able to create 2,000 million pencils each year. However, their mission has remained the same - to create the highest quality tools to help creativity.
