History

 

The Terashini Chemical Industry Co. Ltd began in 1916 in Osaka, Japan.  They focus on art materials including crayons and pastels under their Guitar brand.  Over the years they have also used the name “The Guitar Chemical Factory Co. Ltd” and “Guitar Brand Ind. Co., Ltd” but it is still the same company.  Interestingly, although they had been making their crayons for years, they didn’t trademark their Guitar logo in the USA until 1987.
