Origin Pentel

The company name Pentel has a close connection with the origins of the company which started as an artists’ materials manufacturer. Pentel was created combining the words “painting” (creating a picture using colours, crayons, or pastel crayons) “pastel” (solid drawing material). The name also implies “pen” (a general term for writing instruments) and “tell” (communicating, expressing). Pentel is thus a name that symbolises the company’s products and businesses.


Pentel created the Recycology*™ program to enhance its mission of helping the environment by creating less waste and increasing recycling activity. In today’s world, the protection of the global environment and the prevention of pollution represent tough challenges and have become more important than ever before.

At Pentel we recognise that our natural resources represent the strength and future direction of our lives. We are working hard to make a positive contribution to the environment by minimising our use of natural resources.

We focus on protecting natural resources and the environment at all stages of the manufacturing process. In our Recycology™ products we ensure that all products meet strict environmental standards. We use both recycled content and post-consumer recycled content in these products. All products in this line are made from a minimum of 50% recycled content excluding consumable content and refills.
