Bruynzeel Design Colored Pencils and Water-soluble pencils
Company History
Bruynzeel is based in Bergen Op Zoom, in the Netherlands. Bruynzeel has long been known for their colored pencils. They have now merged with Sakura and become Bruynzeel-Sakura.
The Design series of pencils are designed for artists, and are loved by botanical artists.
The Bruynzeel Designs come in a wonderful box with slide out drawers. The pencils have a slim, natural wood feel, but have a thick lead and vivid colors. They are very soft.
