Steeped in history and fiercely dedicated to innovation, Tombow is one of Japan’s leading writing instrument makers. They got their start in 1913 as a pencil manufacturer and adopted their current brand name, which means “dragonfly” in Japanese, in the 1920s. In addition to pencils, they’ve become known for their Mono erasers, which just might be the most recognizable plastic eraser in the world.
