Caran d'Ache - over 100 Years Dedicated to Luxury Writing Instruments

The House of Caran d'Ache has over a century of activity in the field of writing instruments and fine arts and is world-renowned for its professionalism and reliability as well as the quality of its luxury products.

The Swiss company had an impeccable trajectory and has become, over time, an inimitable representative of luxury writing instruments and a source of inspiration for all generations.

Caran d'Ache's creations combine perfection and craftsmanship with and pure innovation in the field of writing. More than 90 trades come together under the same roof to lovingly make the very best writing and drawing instruments to help you express your creativity.

The innovative house in the manufacture of graphite pens, a very valuable raw material found in the Swiss mountains, continues to be faithful to its origins and the highest quality and aesthetic standards.

Caran d'Ache has A Century of Tradition

Since 1915, all Caran d'Ache products have been made in the workshops in Geneva. The company produces various writing tools, drawing and painting Swiss Made materials. Pure graphite and Fibralo Caran d'Ache colors can be found in stores for professional and amateur artists.

Ecridor Mademoiselle is a new chapter dedicated by Carand'Ache to the female universe, the creations being worked in gold, silver, and diamonds.

Caran d Ache writing tools represent a set of values ​​that communicate, above all words, appreciation, respect, and gratitude, part of a special relationship.

"Our values are the soul that goes into crafting our products and the beacon that guides us every day and in everything we do. They create an entire state of mind that ensures we remain inventive, environmentally responsible, committed to passing on knowledge and education, focused on our quest for excellence, and loyal to the Swiss Made label that embodies the quality of our products".

Although Caran d'Ache likes to work with famous designers and artists such as Paul Smith, Mario Botta, and India Mahdavi, the House also supports young illustrators, artists, and writers, who bring their creativity and emotions to life with Caran d'Ache products.

Two Exceptional Caran d'Ache Pieces

1. "The Crystal"

Crystal's collection of luxury writing instruments is a creative association of two legendary manufactures: the Caran d'Ache House and the famous French crystal company LALIQUE.

The unique style of this limited edition creation unites the pure Art Deco, with the iconic Coutard motif, a succession of water drops in a waterfall that René Lalique created in 1935 for Fontaine Coutard.

The pen is presented in a fine relief of black and white ceramics, with diamonds, and was made in only 18 copies.

2. "The Caelograph"

The limited-edition Caelograph pens combine technical and drawing experiences to explore man's eternal fascination: the sky. It is the first time that a writing instrument is made to decipher the sky, with elements of astronomy and the history of time.

This ingenious tool is aimed especially at admirers of science. The luxury line is presented in gold, silver, and diamonds, which not only offer excellent writing but also have many astronomical functions.

Pens and Paper Seem Less Important in The Age of Tablets and Smartphones

"People may write less by hand than in the past, but for those who still do, a writing tool is a must. It is a joy for the hand and the soul ", explains reporter and fashion expert Jeroen van Rooijen, adding that people choose their words very carefully when they write by hand.

Over the course of more than 100 years, Caran d'Ache instruments have become internationally renowned for the drawing and writing experience they offer through the elegance of their lines, the quality of their materials, the purity of their pigments, and the technical brilliance of their design.

The family business, which was founded in Geneva in 1915, owes this to a shared vision, the unique values of Swiss Made excellence and an innate sense of creativity and innovation.

So, it's definitely a good idea to own some of the wonderful Caran d'Ache luxury writing tools yourself. Likewise, they are always stylish gifts that can surprise and delight your loved ones or your business partners and associates.
