Caran d’Ache

A brand of pencils and more, known by everyone: we have chosen it for undisputed quality and breadth of range.

HIGH QUALITY WRITING INSTRUMENTS, COLOURS AND ACCESSORIES

Caran d’Ache comes from the Russian word for “pencil” which in turn comes from the Turkish word “kara tash”, which refers to graphite.

Graphite is at the heart of this story, because it was thanks to this natural material, hidden in the depths of the Swiss mountains, that the first Swiss pencil factory was founded in Geneva in 1915.  Under the inspired guidance of its founder, Arnold Schweitzer, nine years later it was named after the famous designer Caran d’Ache.
