Coates willow charcoal is known as the world’s finest drawing charcoal. Made from willow rods, it extremely high quality is able to satisfy even the most demanding artist. It is soft and produces deep black hues – it cannot be erased. This natural charcoal has been being produced from willow trees by the English family of Coates for over 40 years. The trees are grown on the high plateau of Somerset. Willow is known to grow very quickly, the rods reaching a length of up to 2.50 metres in one growing season (May to October). The fast growth is responsible for the soft willow wood and therefore for the soft texture of the drawing charcoal itself. Processing the rods into charcoal takes about 3 days and involves a number of separate steps.
