Welcome to Derwent

A warm welcome to the Derwent website which tells you all you need to know about our high quality drawing materials and writing instruments. We've been making pencils in Cumbria since 1832.

We have a long and distinguished history, and we're naturally very proud of it. At the same time, however, we have a reputation for innovative products that excite and inspire artists worldwide.

We hope you enjoy our website!
