Lyra Kids Art Supplies and Pencils

With 200 years of history, Lyra is a company dedicated to providing high quality drawing tools, full of natural pigments in strong wood casing. Their story began in Germany, but since the 19th Century their dedication to their craft has meant that the brand has become known worldwide for their quality materials. Lyra strives to make life more colourful, creative and diverse!

Lyra Kids Art Supplies Colouring PencilsFounded in 1806, the Lyra brand was registered in Nuremberg by Johann Froescheis as a pencil manufacturer. Up until this point, Nuremberg's pencils had been exclusively manufactured by the carpenter's guild which meant there was next to no competition and as a result pencil quality suffered. Napoleon ordered a restructuring of the city, and stripped the Carpenter's guild of their right to produce pencils. Following this restructuring Froescheis established the Lyra brand as a pencil manufacturer.

The Lyra brand is represented by the instrument of the same name - the Lyre is a Greek invention that symbolises art, lifestyle, peacefulness and a creative life. All Lyra's products strive to meet this benchmark for a quality art product that improves your creative life.

Over the past two centuries, Lyra has become one of the oldest and most prolific pencil manufacturers in the world. In the early 1900s their factories were producing over 1 million individual pencil per week! The brand is known not only for its excellence in quality but also for its innovation. With products like the Groove pencil, Lyra revolutionised pencil design and functionality. In 2008 Lyra became part of the Fila family, and joined other notable art supplies manufacturers such as Giotto. Since this merge the company has seen even more success and has expanded its range, using more efficient manufacturing methods while keeping a close eye on the environment.
