Chances are some of you will have heard of, or tried Faber-Castell's popular Polychomos artists’ coloured pencils
; whether this was during the colouring book craze or in a professional capacity. These smooth, wax pencils have been delighting generations since they were launched back in 1908, when
Count Alexander von Faber-Castell first introduced these to his three year son Roland, who later took over the company!
Across Faber's entire ranges they make around 2 billion pencils a year, meaning they're one of the world's largest and oldest manufactures of pens and pencils. These pencils are known for their vibrancy, smudge proof and non-fading colours.
One of our shining product reviews
recently sings their praise:"Faber Castell polychromos pencils I purchased are a game changer, absolutely love them. The pencils paired with the Zest it blender have elevated my drawings to another level". Faber Castell celebrates Polychomos 111th anniversary this year.
Throwback to elegant Art Deco packaging; 1926 was also the birth year of both Queen Elizabeth II and Marilyn Monroe. Follow Faber-Castell online
