Faber Castell is a world-famous company with a 250-year history, famous for the production of high-quality premium pencil products and stationery. Faber Castell was founded in 1761 in Germany. One of the first pencil manufacturers in the imperial city of Nuremberg was furniture maker Caspar Faber. Initially, he was engaged in servicing orders for local shops, but in his spare time he produced pencils for himself. Pretty soon he became so successful that he was able to open his own pencil production. And since then, the company was destined to become world famous.
