One important prerequisite for outstanding products is high-quality materials such as the selected Italian calfskin that the products in the Graf von Faber-Castell collection are made from.
Tough but supple, calfskin is a material that lends itself to fine crafting. The leather is butt-jointed by hand. Graf von Faber-Castell use grained leather for the outer surfaces and usually smooth leather on the inside – a combination with an appealing visual effect.
There is a choice of portrait or landscape fomat, or a wallet with a flap. All of them have three compartments: one for a driving licence or other ID papers, a subdivided pocket for banknotes, and a purse for coins.
All the leather products of Graf von Faber-Castell are available in a choice of brown or black.
In 1761, Kaspar Faber started to produce pencils in Stein, near Nuremberg. When the fourth generation,Baron Lothar von Faber, took over the company in 1839 he turned the pencil into a true quality product and the world’s first branded writing instrument. Over the centuries, he and his descendants created remarkable products. The result is the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection, a range of extraordinary writing instruments and accessories. They embody “Luxury in Simplicity” by combining selected materials, functionality and superb aesthetics.
