Smooth-flowing, vividly-colored chalk. Bright, bold drawings unfold with ease on chalkboards or sidewalk. You can also enjoy pastel-like drawing experience, or watercolor-like painting too by just dissolving chalk powder in some water
Kitpas Japan is guided by the philosophy that everyone, regardless of ability can find happiness and satisfaction through their work. In 1960 they hired their first 2 employees with intellectual disabilities. Since then we have adapted our manufacturing methods and work environment so we can continue to hire employees with different abilities.
Currently 70% of our employees have intellectual disabilities. They all work together in a cooperative space where hourglasses replace clocks and measuring and testing devices have been designed specially for the needs of our employees.
They are committed to enhancing their customers’ creative experience while engaging in earth friendly manufacturing and empowering people with disabilities. Our goal is to have 100 employees with disabilities by the year 2030. We are happy to say that we feel really good about what we are doing in the world!
