Caran d'Ache Pencil Set Edition 8

£30.00

Luxury Caran d'Ache's 'Les Crayons de la Maison' pencil collection.

Created by the expert craftsmen at Caran d'Ache, this pencil collection uses top grade reconstituted wood which has been selected according to the highest standards of quality.

This is the 8th edition in the series, and includes four HB pencils made from ayous (also known as whitewood) and linden (or lime tree). They are also scented with 'Memories of Schooldays', which contains essences of Virginia and Atlas cedar, liquorice, sandalwood and birch heart, following Caran d'Ache's collaboration with Geneva perfume-maker Mizensir.

All the pencils display a degree of stripiness, which is most pronounced on the pale grey pencil. There is also a dark brown highlighted with grey, a dark bluey-grey with hints of ivory and black, and a warm brown with dark brown and ivory accents.

These beautiful pencils are supplied in a presentation box complete with explanatory leaflet.

The leads are made from 100% natural products and the casings have a scented solvent-based finish.
