Caran d’Ache was the pen name used by acclaimed 19th-century Russian-born French illustrator, Emmanuel Poiré. Fittingly, “karandash” is Russian for “pencil” and also originates from the Turkish root “kara tash” which refers to black stone – the origins of graphite. The first Swiss pencil factory was built in Geneva in 1915 and nine years later its founder Arnold Schweitzer, became known as Caran d’Ache. They are committed to developing writing and drawing instruments using the finest materials and innovation.
