Gondola Pastel was founded in 1919 in Kyoto, the first soft pastel company in Japan.
Over the past 90 years since the founding of company, each and every color has been carefully crafted by hand to reflect the Light of Japan.
Pastels differ from other kinds of paints by the fact that they are notoriously difficult to mix.
For that reason, you need to use multiple pastels in order to freely express the colors you want to paint.
This 48-color set is highly recommended for those first-time users who want to try and have fun with pastels.
It's packaged in a lovely wooden case, so it makes a great gift too!
