Sakura started in 1921 as a crayon manufacturer and developed the innovative Cray-Pas range of oil pastels. In the 1980’s Sakura widened their interests into ink and developed the sub-micron pigments required for dispensing waterproof and lightfast drawing ink through the narrowest of nibs structures. The result was the legendary Pigma range of drawing pens.
Sakura now manufactures a wide range of high-quality niche pens for crafting, marking and drawing.
‘Sakura’ means cherry blossom in Japanese and a stylised cherry blossom flower forms the Sakura logo.
