A Little about Drawing Pencils

The pencil was invented in the middle of the 16th century after finding graphite reservoirs in England.

The Italians thought of the idea of ​​circling the graphite bar with wood and the Germans were the first to mass-produced pencils from the mid-17th century.

Faber-Castell is the world's largest pencil manufacturer and one of the oldest.

Depending on its size, one tree can produce about 300,000 pencils.

Pencils can write in zero gravity, upside down and even underwater!
