For generations, professional artists, leisure artists and students have chosen and trusted the Derwent brand for art materials around the world.Possessing a proud history dating back to 1832, Derwent’s innovation comes from a deep understanding of artists. Derwent acknowledges that their needs and aspirations may change over their artistic life, and with this in mind has produced a range of art materials that span from the first colouring pencil to the highest professional quality products.The majority of which are still made in their British manufacturing plant in The Lake District, in the UK.
Derwent can justifiably claim to produce the most innovative and largest range of artists pencils, pens and accessories. Derwent 'Professional Quality' is aimed at the professional artist or leisure artist that requires the best quality drawing products from graphite, colouring pencils, or watercolour pencils and pens.
These collections also come in handcrafted wooden boxes which can make a decadent gift for the budding artist, or storage solutions whilst on the go with their popular canvas pencil wrap.
