Portuguese Pencils: Kalimera


If the pen is mightier than the sword, where does that leave the pencil? Surely among the most ancient and powerful tools for communication. These Portuguese beauties have been handcrafted since 1907 in the Iberian Peninsula’s oldest pencil factory, a family-owned company renowned for high quality. They are made with fine and durable FSC-certified woods. 

Kalimera means “good morning” in Greek and these unsharpened graphite pencils in a hexagonal shape with natural wood core are painted the thick, glossy yellow and burnished gold of pure sunshine.

Made in Portugal.
Set of 12, unsharpened. 
Gift boxed

These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.

We would be great together -
