Brand Story - Kitpas
Kitpas has been producing quality art materials since 1937 and supplying many schools in Japan. They also place great focus on environmental and social responsibility. They started as a manufacturer of dustless chalk based in Bibai-shi, Hokkaido (translate to "beautiful shell city"), where massive waste piles of seashell was causing serious environmental issues, so they developed a patented process to recycle them and add to their chalks, the recycled powdered seashell makes their chalks stronger, smoother and longer-lasting! To support and empower workers of different abilities, they have adapted their production method and work environment, currently over 70% of their employees are with disabilities.
