As Shopify unfortunately does not support automated VAT deduction based on your location / shipping address, we've come up with this temporary fix.
We're working on getting this sorted:
in the near future if applicable, VAT will be deducted automatically!

Caran d’Ache pens are visually stunning, yes, but just wait till you hold one in your hands. There’s a richness in the way it moves, a sort of creamy elegance. It’s like riding in a convertible for the first time. Sneaking into the pool at a five-star hotel. Swearing in French. That is, it feels like living your life a touch more decadently than you thought you might be entitled to. (But oh! How good it feels once you’ve got it.) Named for the Russian word for pencil (karandash), this erstwhile company was founded in 1915 when entrepreneur Arnold Schweitzer purchased the Ecridor colour pencil factory on the outskirts of Geneva.
Over the years, Caran d’Ache have developed their range, making pens and pencils with the same delicacy and precision that their compatriots bring to watchmaking. After all, we love the Caran d’Ache range for the finesse they put into the smallest of details, for their feel for luxury. Their pencil wood is often harvested from local Swiss forests, and the graphite is carefully selected, coloured and graded to produce a stubbornly strong tip. Their pens are carefully engineered objets d’art, capable of gliding over eight kilometres worth of ink. The end results are perfectly balanced writing tools that elevate themselves above the conventional and into the exceptional.
We love the way that Caran d’Ache tools feel so light and easy in your hand, and we’re more than happy for you to try them out in our Amsterdam store. You can browse our selection in our online shop.
