We love to save trees and these natural tamarind twig pencils are environmentally friendly and a novel way of recycling. Natural twig pencils are crafted from the natural tree branches of the Tamarind tree which is very common and prolific throughout SE Asia. The trees are farmed for their fruit and after the fruit is harvested, the branches are cut and left to dry in the sun. They are then drilled and the pencil colour is inserted. The pencil colour does not run the whole length of the pencil as this is not possible with this natural product. Produced by a small family based business in Northern Thailand.
Approx. Size: L 13cm x H 1cm
