The first IROJITEN color pencil was sold in Japan as early as 1988. For a long time, only the eponymous sets had been available in Europe. Now, the color pencils are also for individual sale.
They are wax-based so you can create precise lines and details. The word "IROJITEN" is Japanese and means color encyclopedia. It is the perfect name for a pencil that is released in nine beautiful hardcover-like volumes . All pens come in a stylish creamy white finish and their end piece corresponds with the lead color.
