Made of Zantech®, an innovative material made of 80% graphite – a waste of the Italian industrial production of electrodes for the electro-erosion process – combined with a chemical compound, with no protective varnishes, glues or additional processing.
The pairing of rubber and graphite, fruit of invention, occurs during moulding.
Perpetua is an European registered patent on both product and production process and it is the only graphite pencil made in Italy.
While writing, you are disposing of Perpetua’s 15 grams of graphite thanks to its exclusive and unique production technology. An eco-sustainable system which makes us remember that, to make standard pencils instead, trees must be cut down.
Perpetua® is not only a new style of writing but also a new style of living, respecting the Planet and being aware that small gestures can make a big difference.
“The pencil – what my grandfather used to call by the Latin name ‘lapis’ – has always been part of my life. HB, 2B, 4B, 6B for soft shades; 2H for technical drawings. Micro leads, maxi leads. And then, the opportunity to design MY PENCIL. How could I ever say no?”
Designer of Perpetua the pencil.
