Soft Pastels, Handmade in Kyoto


The selected 18 colors are given names related to Kyoto. You’ll be able to sense the four seasons of Kyoto from the pastel colors. 

Gondola Pastel made the first pastels in Japan and we are the only soft pastel maker in the country. For 90 years since 1919, our hand made pastels have been loved by many artists who draw the beautiful sceneries of Japan.

Each pastel is about 1" in length. 

KOBO notes: These are very special pastels, no fillers, just pure pigment.
