Join Faber-Castell in celebrating equality and cultural diversity with our World Colors colored pencil sets. Rooted in Germany and represented in over 120 countries, Faber-Castell is a global brand striving to provide complete inclusivity to children and creatives of all ethnicities.

The representation of all nations through artistic media is a concept that is long overdue. Encouraging all children to lead their lives with self-expression becomes a full reality with World of Colors. Incorporating six blendable skin tones with a traditional color set, Faber-Castell is the first company to normalize the normal. When a child sets out to create an image portraying his or her family, friends, heroes, or an image of themselves, World Colors colored pencils make it possible to match the skin tone shade they desire.

Hands with different World Colors shades
48% of kids and young adults identify themselves as a person of color. It is estimated that by 2060, 63% of children under 18 will self-identify as a person of color. With diversity on the rise, there is an overwhelming need for proper representation in the art world and in the classroom. World Colors was developed with the expertise of makeup artists, ensuring quality shades that seamlessly blend to create any desired skin shade.

Faber-Castell’s World Colors is available in sets of 15 and 27, each with six blendable skin tones alongside traditional colors. These sets can be found online on Amazon, Faber-Castell, Walmart, and Jet. They can also be found in stores including Blick Art Materials, select Learning Express Locations and various art material retailers and specialty toy stores.

Faber-Castell World Colors colored pencil sets
All children deserve art materials that support their individuality and self-esteem. World Colors offers this to kids and helps them celebrate and embrace creativity and self-expression.
