The Hans Stockmar Company was founded in northern Germany in 1922, and initially offered beekeeping supplies and candles. Over time, and in cooperation with Waldorf school art teachers, the company developed many other products, notably including modeling beeswax, wax crayons, water colour paints and decorative wax sheets.
Stockmar products became known around the world for their uncompromised quality and production in adherence to high pedagogical, artistic, social and environmental standards. Moreover, they are regularly subjected to testing by independent laboratories in Germany to insure their safely and purity.
The heart of Stockmar's product development is based on the sensory development of the child as understood by Rudolf Steiner. This is of upmost importance, as these days the primary sensory experience is becoming less essential.
All Stockmar products are development based on the extended version of Goethe's "Theory of Colors". Almost all of Stockmar's products come in this wide range of colors and that the colors in the individual products match. We refer to this as the Stockmar Colour Harmony and allows the different products in the range to be mixed and remain harmonious.
