British Made Pens and Pencils – British Made Ink – British Made Crayons and Chalk – British Made Pencil Cases – British Made Rulers

Makers and suppliers of British Made Pens and Pencils, British Made Ink, British Made Crayons and Chalk, British Made Pencil Cases, and British Made Rulers:-

Derwent Pencils have been making pencils in Cumbria since 1832. Not everything they sell is made in the UK, for example their metal pencil sharpener is made in Germany. Individual Derwent Pencils that say “England” or “Made in Britain'” on them are UK made. Multi-packs of pencils will say made in the UK on the packaging if they are made in the UK or look for the Union Flag on the packaging. Some of their Academy Sketching eraser tipped pencils and their Lakeland Jumbo pencils are made in Thailand or PRC. None of their sketch pads and accessories are made in the UK. Basically on their pencils if it does not say England or “Made in Britain” or if it does not say made in the UK on the pack, then it is not UK made; best to go by what it says on the tin. The tins themselves by the way are not made in the UK. The Cumberland Pencil Company (Derwent Pencils) is a division of ACCO Brands (Rexel) and so is now American owned. Lovely pencils for you to sketch, colour, illustrate and create!  See the video below for some history of pencils and pencil making at Derwent Pencils today. They also have a pencil museum and shop and cafe in Keswick in the Lake District.

As you may already know from one of my previous blog posts, my Westie Belle also loves things that are made in Britain. We recently visited her favourite pet boutique called Barkitty where Belle spotted a very patriotic Union Jack harness made by Mutts and Hounds. When she tried it on and had lots of attention and compliments from the other customers in the shop, she just had to have it!

Here is Belle trying on the Mutts and Hounds Union Jack harness at Barkitty. I think she has very good taste as it really suits her and also fits perfectly!

A couple of piccies of Belle modeling her new trendy harness before going out for a walk.

The same Mutts and Hounds harness is also available in Tweed.

You can also buy a Mutts and Hounds Union Jack neckerchief.
