This pack of five, wood-free, high quality HB pencils makes a great gift for adults, students and children alike. Each pencil has a 2mm nib and is hand rolled using brightly coloured, recycled newspaper, thus helping to reduce the amount of global waste and the usage of unsustainable sources at the same time!

Hand made from 100% recycled newspaper by a social enterprise in Sri Lanka. Presented in a recyclable brown kraft card box.

Due to the recycled nature of this product, some pencils may vary slighly in colour and print to those shown in these images.

Approximately 17cm long.

FAIR TRADE

Paper High only work with small family businesses, community incentives, charities and accredited fair trade organisations.  Every product is produced by standards as set out by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) and is handmade by skilled artisans using sustainable or recycled materials wherever possible.

The pencils are hand made by a social enterprise in Sri Lanka who aim to minimise the environmental damage caused by the overuse and unsustainability of plastics and so only use eco-friendly recycled paper to create stunning gifts.

Paper High was born out of a love of travelling. Founders Mark and Claire set off on a year long round-the-world trip in 1998. Three years later an extended stay in Kathmandu and a chance meeting with a paper maker sowed the seed of an exciting business idea.

After setting up a stall at Camden Market, Mark and Claire found that people loved the unique quality of handmade books as much as they did, and their business has grown from there.
