Holbein is a family owned Japanese Company based in Osaka, Japan. Since the turn of the last century it has become one of the world's largest manufacturers of high quality artist's materials, which has taken pride in maintaining the highest standards of quality control in the industry. To ensure uniformity of color, lightfastness and consistency, the manufacturing process has been entirely computerized, with 'permanence, brilliance, and technique in mind.' The medium soft consistency and square shape work great for edge work, line work, and detail and offer minimal dusting.
