Founded in 1780, Pastels Girault specialises in making soft-pastel crayons 61 mm long and 6 mm across. The current owner represents the eighth generation.

The firm has rare and complex ancestral skills and carries out all the production stages: weighing, grinding (which requires highly technical know-how) and extrusion.

Pastels Girault has a range of 526 colours, comprising 82 main colours and 444 blended colours: with white, white and black, and another colour (combination colours).

It has an established and international clientele, and some of its products are exhibited in a museum.
