Caran d'Ache Pens
About Caran d'AcheCountry: Switzerland
Caran d’Ache originated as a simple pencil maker located in Geneva, Switzerland in 1915 to over 100 years later emerging as one of the worlds recognized leaders in premier manufacturing and the only manufacturer of fine writing instruments to be located in Switzerland.
Although the Swiss are known for their technical knowledge and excellent craftsmanship and quality in its watch making industry, Caran d’Ache has extended such craftsmanship and quality to the fine writing manufacturing as well.
Arnold Schweitzer merged the original writing instrument company with the Ecridor Pencil Factory when he purchased it in 1924. Mr. Schweitzer decided to name his new company after the nickname of a French Political cartoonist, whose name originated from karandash, which is the Russian word for pencil, thus Caran d’Ache was officially formed.
Caran d’Ache continues to manufacture its products in its Geneva Switzerland workshops today.
