Founded by Johann Froescheis in 1806 in Nuremberg, Lyra is one of the oldest brands of pencils in the world. Lyra was one of the early companies to make ergonomic triangular shaped pencils for children. Their pencils can be found in Waldorf schools all over Europe.
Based in Schleswig-Holstein, the Stockmar company has been making quality products for art and art teaching for many decades. Hans Stockmar started with beekeeping products and beeswax candles in 1922. Acting on the suggestion of certain art teachers he soon proceeded to develop his modelling wax, and more than 50 years ago the classic Stockmar wax crayon was then created. The watercolours and wax sheets came later. All Stockmar art supplies are made in Germany, non-toxic, harmless.
