Creative Art Materials Ltd. provides the premium brand art materials you need to complete your next masterpiece.

The name Caran d’Ache is rooted in the annuals of art history. When Arnold Schweitzer founded the company in 1924, he named it after a famous French caricaturist Emmanuel Poiré (1859-1909), whose work he admired. Mr. Poiré signed his works Caran d’Ache, a French transliteration of the Russian word for pencil - “karandash”.
