“Art & Graphic”, which is held in high esteem by hobby painters and professionals alike, combines the best from over 250 years of experience in developing and manufacturing exclusive artists’ products. Great artists and designers such as Vincent van Gogh, Paul Klee, Karl Lagerfeld and Neo Rauch valued the wide spectrum of colour nuances and the premium quality offered by the range, which has not changed to this day: the high-quality pigments guarantee superior light-fastness and brilliant colours that last for centuries, helping artists to create timeless works of art.
Creative Studio is a range for adults who need drawing and colouring materials at college or for their work, who are perhaps put off by the childhood associations of Faber-Castell’s "Playing & Learning" range, but on the other hand want an alternative to the professional artists’ materials in the "Art & Graphic" range. But it’s just as much aimed at creative amateur artists who would like quality products for their hobby, or to give as presents.
Faber-Castell’s “General Writing” field of competence complements the modern office or study in the form of functional writing implements for taking notes, sketching, and correcting texts. Besides function and attractive design, Faber-Castell also sees its strategic strength in focusing on intelligent additional benefits for the consumer: for example, the non-slip grip zone on the “Grip 2001” pencils. This strategy of providing a “point of difference” has given the company a leading position in many markets.
The “Fine writing” series, with its purist and functional language of form, has become an elementary building block in the Faber-Castell range. The series is aimed at satisfying the needs of demanding consumers, and the elegant products are particularly suitable as presents. The unmistakable visual feature, recurring like a common thread, is wood: it symbolizes the company’s world-wide core competence.
Faber-Castell grows about 20 cubic metres of wood every hour, which corresponds to around 1 truck load.
For its own pencil production, Faber-Castell only uses wood from sustainably managed forests.
