Caran d'Ache has designed an innovative Lightfast pencil with the highest lightfastness available today. Two years of research yielded a combination of unsurpassed lightfastness with the smoothness of a permanent lead, guaranteeing professionals and artists the world over that thier pencil works will survive. The softness of the leads enables artists to obtain subtle mixes and gradations, as well as blends. Every shade has been formulated using finely-ground pigments chosen for their purity, intensity and resistance to UV. The chromatic range of Luminance 6901 is perfectly balanced and comes in sets of 20, 40 or 76 colors. Artists, designers, architects, stylists, art directors, interior designers - all creative professionals will appreciate the tchnical features, aesthtics and ergonomics of Luminance 6901.

At the request of the Colord Pencil Society of America (CPSA), the American Society for Testing and Material has developed the standard ASTM D-6901 to determine the lightfast level of a colored pencil. Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 is the only brand to offer a set of 76 colors, of which 61 are classified in the best category (Lightfastness I) under the standard.

Cut from California cedar, the Luminance 6901 colored pencils carry the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) label, a guarantee that the logging of the materials used for the pencils is environmentally-friendly and socially and economically sustainable.fsc
