Description

Dive into the 60s with this two coloured pencil, ideal for all your creative works. Alternate between the blue and red tips to easily make changes to your drawings, texts and diagrams. Both mines can be sharpened. The large diameter of this pencil, manufactured by the Italian brand Fabriano, makes it particularly pleasant to use. While it is true that the two coloured pencil is one of the classics of specialist stationery, this Fabriano model is enhanced by its golden marking which reinforces its deliciously retro look.

This two coloured coloured pencil made by the Italian brand of Fabriano is part of our “Archivio” stationery collection, dedicated to Italian craftsmanship. Find all our other stationery items from this exceptional heritage here.

History

The two coloured pencil was invented in France by the manufacturer Conté at a time when television was booming. It soon became known as the “television pencil”, in reference to its frequent use by editors, particularly television editors. Widely used in specialised fields such as education, construction, architecture and publishing for its practical blue and red aspect, this pencil became very popular at the end of the 20th century. So much so that nowadays many manufacturers offer their own version.

Since 1264, Fabriano has been synonymous with high quality paper, esteemed throughout the world and known by publishers, writers and artists. Indeed, although the invention of paper is traditionally attributed to Asia, the people of the small town of Fabriano, in Italy, deserve credit for making Fabriano the birthplace of modern paper production. Today, the town is home to Europe’s oldest working paper mill, operated by the historic paper manufacturer Fedrigoni, whose papers are used to make our little foglietti.
