Because of wide diversity of climate, Iran is a rich country as a source of natural wood. There are more than 100 types of trees distributed in four different geographic zones with different properties and appearance. Wood is tied to daily life, traditions and local art of Iran. There are more than 20 types of different Iranian musical instruments that highlight the usage of wood as a basic material of handcrafts and as source of inspiration.
The selected collection of woods for these pencils is the result of a long study about different aspects of Iranian infrequent or special tree types and then comparing them in a practical manner about pencil design.
