Writing instruments and the most luminous colors:
The company was founded in 1915, and was originally called “Fabrique Genevoise de Crayons”. The name ‘Caran d’Ache’ arrived in 1924. The Turkish name for a pencil comes from their term for graphite - black stone, or ‘kara tash’. This led to the Russian word for a pencil - ‘karandash’. In turn, that was taken by a French political cartoonist, who decided to use the name ‘Caran d’Ache’. The name was adopted by the Geneva-based pencil maker, and the brand was born.
