The Faber-Castell Company is currently featuring a pencil drawing I did of the Statue of Liberty in AC Moore stores.
This comes from the Faber-Castell Company regarding the information listed incorrectly on Wikipedia:
I was surprised that it (Wikipedia) listed only the Premium pens being manufactured in Germany. The pencils are made in the original facility in Stein (near Nurnberg, Germany).
The products produced at Faber-Castell plant in Malaysia are artist erasers.
Our core products, pencils are mostly produced in Germany (including the Castell 9000 pencils that you created the Liberty image with). Polychromos color pencils, Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils, and PITT artist pens are also produced in Germany. Some of our Art Grip pencils are produced in Brazil (reforested wood) and some in Germany…
Faber-Castell is a German high-end manufacturer of writing instruments, art supplies, staplers, slide rules, and luxury leather goods, founded in 1761 in Nuremberg by Kaspar Faber. The enterprise was in the Faber family for five generations when through the marriage of Count Alexander Castell-Rüdenhausen (1866 - 1928) with Ottilie Baroness von Faber to create the branch of Faber-Castell in 1898. The Faber-Castell family has continued to run the company in the sixth, seventh and eighth generations through now.
Faber-Castell USA is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, and is part of the global network of Faber-Castell companies operating in countries such as Australia, Brazil, and Malaysia. Most consumer products from Faber-Castell are made in Malaysia. Only some premium pens are still manufactured in Germany.
