My pencil case is produced in the village of Tiebele, in Burkina Faso, a small country (roughly the size of Colorado) located in West Africa.
Formerly called the Republic of Upper Volta, Burkina Faso was renamed in 1984 to mean "the land of upright people.” A cooperative of Tiebele women collect discarded plastic bags and roll them into thin tubes that are then woven (like yarn) to produce the pencil case. The Tiebele women took my design for a simple pencil case and created an immensely warm and colorful creation.
Comes with three General Cedar Pointe pencils, a Factis eraser and a Kum magnesium pencil sharpener. The General Cedar Pointe is a hex shaped pencil with a natural raw wood cedar finish and black eraser. General Pencil is the oldest American pencil company, handcrafted in the U.S. since 1889.
The woven pencil case is unlined, features a nylon coil zipper, and is made from repurposed plastic bags. Colors vary due to the assortment of plastic bags that are collected. Each pencil case is unique.
