Fabrique genevoise de crayons began over 101 years ago when the Ecridor Pencil Factory was purchased by Arnold Schweitzer in Geneva, Switzerland.  Today, the company known as Caran d’Ache is the premium manufacturer of pens, pencils and art supplies in Switzerland with the brand known world-wide for its quality.  I had the chance to visit the Boutique Caran d”Ache at Place du Bourg-de-Four on my visit to Geneva.  A wonderful little shop from the manufacturer of 40,000,000 FSC-certified pencils a year.
