History

 

Founded in 1916 in Japan, Colleen liquidated its assets in 1997. At one time it was considered one of the big three Japanese pencil manufacturers.  The revived Colleen Pencil (Thailand) Co. was founded in 1989 about 80 kilometers outside of Bankok, Thailand.  Not sure how the overlap works; they must have kept operating after the Japanese side went bankrupt.  They still use the same Colleen logo but changed it around after the revival.  They make both pencils and crayons.  They carry a crayon line with the same name and don’t follow Crayola’s color assortment lead by having an assortment that differs from most other companies selling crayons.
