Introducing Kitpas! Made in Japan, Kitpas Art Crayons are non-toxic, buttery soft, vivid in colour, and can be used on non-porous surfaces such as glass/windows, whiteboards, paper and mirrors. Add water to your drawing to turn it into watercolour paint!
Kitpas Art Crayons and Dustless Chalk are manufactured by Nihon Rikagaku Industry Co, a family run business in its fourth generation. What really sets this brand apart is their environmental and inclusive employment values. Kitpas Dustless Chalk is created from a combination of calcium carbonate (used in toothpaste) and pounded sea scallop shells! The region in which one of their factories resides had an oversupply in scallop shells from its seafood industry, so much so that it was creating an environmental hazard. Kitpas turned this problem into an innovativeproduct by recycling the shells and producing their patented chalk.
Sixty years ago, Nihon Rikagaku Industry Co founded the “Intellectual Disability Employment Program”, and have since established a safe workplace for over 50 employees with mental and physical and/or intellectual impairments.
We love bringing quality brands with such empowering and important core valuesto our store and hope you enjoy as much as we do!
