Graf von Faber-Castell
The Faber-Castell company, which takes its name from Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen marriage to Lothar von Faber’s granddaughter Ottilie, is not only the oldest manufacturer of wood-cased pencils, but also the world’s best-known name in graphite and colour pencils. And they still look very much as they did 150 years ago.
It was a personal challenge to rediscover the products of a past age, and to bring them up to date with timeless design and the use of modern technology. This idea, based on selected writing implements made by the ancestors, took shop in the “Graf von Faber-Castell” collection. It embodies the luxury of simplicity, a harmonious combination of selected materials, aesthetic looks, and a high degree of functionalism.
