Perpetua the pencil is an idea of Alisea Recycled & Reused Objects Design, since 1994 a reference name in the ideation, design and production of unique design objects. Through innovation and use of cutting-edge technologies, waste originating from non-renewable raw materials is transformed into unique objects. A real revolution in the world of writing. For the first time, recovered graphite is combined with a compound which makes it harder, shock resistant and clean, as it does not get your hands dirty. Perpetua, the only pencil made in Italy, is a European registered patent including its production process. We have developed a new way of reusing graphite powder, the waste of industrial production, otherwise destined to be buried underground. By using Perpetua you are disposing 15 grams of graphite. The exclusive production technlology makes the traditional wood casing obsolete, therefore giving birth to an eco-sustainable method to create a pencil, where no tree has been cut down to produce it.
