A History of Innovation

Koh I Noor was founded in Vienna in 1790 by Josef Hardtmuth. Almost from the start, Koh I Noor pencils were a success in the stationary world. When they were taken to a range of exhibitions around the world, they were frequently given prestigious awards. London in 1862, Milan in 1905, and Paris in 1925 were just a few of the exhibitions where Koh I Noor stole the show.

Growth and Expansion

As their range of pencils became more and more popular, Koh I Noor decided it was time to expand the business. As part of the expansion, the company decided that they would focus on making stationary for specific purposes – artistry, office work, school work, and hobby crafting. This allowed them to experiment with design elements so they could craft the perfect product for each intended use. This expansion proved to be a great success, with the company going from strength to strength producing other forms of stationary, including chalk, crayons, and watercolours.

Koh I Noor Pencils

While they have had a lot of success in many areas, Koh I Noor pencils have remained where their strength truly lies. Now they have started producing a range of mechanical pencils, which are ideal for office and study use. They also have a range of colour pencils which are popular among artists and hobby crafters alike.
