Brand: Krasin Pencil Factory
Made in: Russia
Love it that even the Russians were using this paint swirl colorway on their pencils.
Founded in 1926, Krasin Pencil Factory is the oldest Russian manufacturer of writing instruments still in operation today. The Moscow-based company announced in 2015 that it would be building a large new pencil plant, to be running at full capacity by 2022. Many of Krasin’s pencils are marked with a number indicating the year they were produced (ie. 56 is 1956). More information at their website, here.
