Graf von Faber-Castell, founded in 1761, developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils, both graphite and colour. Baron Lothar von Faber then turned the humble pencil into the world’s first brand-name writing implement.

Inspired by selected writing instruments produced by his ancestors, Anton-Wolfgang Graf Von Faber-Castel saw it as a personal challenge to rediscover these products of a past age, and to bring them up to date with timeless design and the use of modern technology. This idea took shape as the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection, which embodies the luxury of simplicity, a harmonious combination of selected materials, aesthetic looks and a high degree of functionalism.
