Introduction of Project


Everybody uses pencils. From designers, writers and architects, to baby-sitters and receptionists. Pencils are just as at home with children as they are with adults and are a fundamental tool for creativity and learning.

Rainbow pencils are made of recycled paper & let you create beautiful paper rainbow sharpenings, every time you sharpen them.



Made of Recycled Waster Paper

Rainbow Pencils function like regular wooden pencils, and are the same size and weight, but they're not made from wood, they're made from layers of recycled waste paper.

In the United States alone, over 7 million cubic feet of wood are used every year to manufacture wooden pencils. With rainbow pencils, not only do all those trees not need to be cut down, but the huge amount of paper that might otherwise be thrown into landfill, can be recycled and put to good use. 

The outer (black or white) layers of each pencil are also made from recycled paper. The finish of each pencil is therefore never ‘perfect’ and will contain marks and imperfections, as is standard of recycled paper. 



Making Rainbows

You don’t need a special sharpener to make rainbows, but a sharp, good quality one will help you make better ones. Trying to make the perfect rainbow is all part of the fun!

As well as all the colours of the rainbow, each sharpening will have a trim of either black or white around the edge.



Two colors: Black & White

Initial prototyping involved hand-cutting and stacking various layers of plastic sheet. During refinement the hand-cutting process was replaced by laser-cutting, then once the shapes were developed in 3D software, they began a number of iterations using 3D-printing, vacuum-casting, and good old fashion hand model-making.

Both (black and white) types of pencil have the same packaging, but the angled cut ‘window’ of the sleeve allows easy identification of which is which.
