Stockmar and Filana Crayon Comparison Video Link
On March 24, 2014
Here is the correct link to see Eugene Schwartz compare coloring and colors with Filana and Stockmar crayons here
Sorry to send the wrong link the first time around.
PS While Filana has made a good deal of noise about the perceived shortcomings of Stockmar crayons, we still have not received an answer from Filana our inquiry about the soy oil in the Filana crayons, what percent of the crayon is made up of soy oil, should parents and teachers be concerned for children with soy allergies and sensitivities? Is the soy oil organic? Is it certified free of GMO contamination? Curious minds want to know.

Are the Filana crayons available for purchase? If so, where?
not yet, I’m quite sure we’ll hear bout them just as soon as they are released!
Has anyone checked on the percentage of wax in Faber crayons? Just curious. Can’t find any info from mr. Google :)
Hello, I have found an article from Okotest who tested 15 kinds of crayons. Eberhardt-Faber crayons contains not so very much beeswax. Probably less then 5%
It seems this conversation has come and gone. A fresh insight into the Filana crayons comes from a Waldorf School in Utah who ordered these crayons for grades 1 – 4. Each grade has two or three classes. This is a LOT of crayons. Before the year was out they had cracked, broken, and lost corners. They were quite useless for the beautiful drawing we do using the sides of the crayons. I sent a message regarding this issue but never heard back.
Sorry, I should add that has content details of their crayons posted on their sight. Not only do they tell you what is in the crayon but they explain why they have chosen to use each ingredient. It’s extremely helpful considering that the quality of Stockmar crayons is peerless in terms of the rugged use and artistic expression needed in a Waldorf Classroom.
