Graf von Faber-Castell

The company was founded in 1761, and from the mid-19th century developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils, both graphite and colour. Baron Lothar von Faber turned the humble pencil into the world‘s first brand-name writing implement.
The Faber-Castell company takes its name from Ottilie von Faber’s marriage in 1898 to Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen, a scion of one of the oldest noble families in Germany.
“Inspired by selected writing instruments produced by my ancestors, I 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.
