PACK OF 10 COLOURED PENCILS
Set of 10 rustic wooden assorted coloured pencils. Twig pencils are crafted from the natural tree branches of the Tamarind tree which is very common and prolific throughout SE Asia. The trees are farmed for their fruit and after the fruit is harvested, the branches are cut and left to dry in the sun. They are then drilled and the pencil colour is inserted. The pencil colour does not run the whole length of the pencil as this is not possible with this natural product.
Our UK Supplier is still a relatively small business with a strong ethical policy at its core. They aim to buy from small scale producers who use largely natural materials and traditional techniques to produce beautiful and interesting articles. All of their products are fairly traded. We believe that the best way to reduce poverty is through trade.
Our UK supplier seeks to support marginalised small producers and aim to help workers to move from income insecurity to economic self sufficiency. The manufacture of goods for us generates income for the local community and we hope that these benefits should enrich the quality of life of the local community.
Made in India.

The pieces arrived so well packaged to protect them, and we were blown away by them when we unpacked them – absolutely stunning. They will provide many, many years of enjoyment. I am sure we will visit again in the future as a result and will be sure to infirm others kind regards,”
