Kitpas products are manufactured by Nihon Rikagaku Industry Co, a family business that was founded in Tokyo, Japan, in 1937 by Yozo Oyama. Nihon Rikagaku Industry Co has been making quality art materials for over 80 years and their most popular products are Kitpas Chalk and Kitpas Art Crayons.
Kitpas Chalk is made from a mixture of limestone-based calcium carbonate and pounded scallop shells. The huge amounts of scallop shells disposed of by the seafood industry in Japan have created a big environmental problem and Nihon Rikagaku Industry Co has developed a patented chalk production technique that not only uses scallop shells as a renewable, recycled material but it also creates chalk that is stronger, smoother and longer lasting!
In 2005 Nihon Rikagaku Industry Co introduced Kitpas Art Crayons, a new innovative material with several special attributes. Unlike regular crayons, Kitpas Art crayons can adhere to multiple surfaces including paper, glass, mirrors and whiteboards. They are buttery smooth, vividly coloured, water soluble as well as completely non-toxic (meeting EN71 safety regulations) and easy to clean up. Kitpas Crayons are a hit with both parents and children and won Japan’s prestigious “Stationary of the Year Award” in 2009.
