About Krasin Pencil Factory

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.
