A very special version of Caran d'Ache's standard Edelweiss Pencil, the Edelweiss Scots Pine is part of Caran d'Ache's effort to make more of their pencils out of woods native to Switzerland instead of importing cedar from the US.
One of the most iconic pencil brands still in operation, Caran d’Ache was founded in 1915 and has been family-run ever since (4th generation!). Their name is taken from 19th century political cartoonist Emmanuel Poiré, whose psuedonym was Caran d’Ache, a franco-fied version of "karandash," the Russian word for "pencil."
