Made in: USA
Velvet made under the Faber Castell banner. This one has an opaque blue print. NOTE: The single pencil is available for purchase here.
Also in the gallery I received some Venus Velvet(top) from Norway and they are under the Faber Castell banner as well, but the only design that looks like the old American models.
German-based Faber-Castell is one of the oldest industrial companies in the world. Originally established in 1761 by the cabinet maker Kaspar Faber (1730-1784), the company was at that time known as A.W. Faber. In 1900, when Lothar Faber’s granddaughter married a count of Castell, the A.W. Faber enterprise was renamed to Faber-Castell. Faber-Castell USA, part of the Faber-Castell family of companies, is based in Cleveland, Ohio.
