Who are Faber-Castell?

First established in 1761, when Kaspar Faber opened a small workshop in the German village of Stein, Faber-Castell continues to manufacture in Germany, as well as 8 other countries.

Fourth generation Baron Lothar von Faber took over the family business in 1839, launching the world’s first branded pencil, “A. W. Faber”. It was the marriage of Lothar’s granddaughter, Ottilie, to Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen, which saw the creation of the Faber-Castell name and brand.

Today, Faber-Castell continues to produce high quality pencils, including a range developed specifically for the cosmetics market, under the leadership of eighth generation Count Anton-Wolfgang von Faber-Castell.

These really are the best colour pencils. No need to press on hard to release the colours. Worth the extra cost.

I haven't used them yet but I did buy some for my Daughter, a while back from Cowling and Wilcox , she did say they were lovely pencils. As she is a teacher she must use a lot of pencils. I wanted some with a wax in them, some one said these were the best.
