How These Pencils are Made
The wood comes from certified sustainable forestry. The coating is environmentally-friendly water-based varnish and therefore contains no solvents.
The lead is protected against breakages with a special glue over the entire lead in the wooden shaft (not just point-gluing).
The high-quality pigment guarantees vibrant colours.
