Faber-Castell is one of the world's largest and oldest manufacturers of pens, pencils, and art supplies. It was founded in 1761 near Nuremberg, Germany as the A.W. Faber Company, and has remained in the Faber family for eight generations!
In 1900, after the marriage of a Faber heiress to the count of Castell, the A.W. Faber enterprise took the name of Faber-Castell and a new logo, combining the Faber motto, "Since 1761," with the jousting knights of the Castells' coat of arms. A.W. Faber is the oldest brand-name pencil continuously sold in the US, beginning sales in 1870. Today, the company operates on five continents in more than 100 countries.
