For a Bangladeshi pencil

I always found pencils easy to write with. The sound it creates during its movement on a piece of paper stimulates my mind. I realized this again when I was scribbling some notes in a new notebook I got from one of my good friends. A notebook he bought in Istanbul. I decided to buy a dozen pencils. My children use pencil a lot but I wanted to get some Bangladeshi ones.
But to my disquiet I didn’t find a single pencil made by any Bangladeshi manufacturer. I got dismal: there are dozens of foreign brands – German, British, even Indian and Pakistani.
Is this true? Doesn’t Bangladesh produce any lead pencils? We used write with the Bangladeshi ones during our school days!
There has to be some!!!
I’ll wait for some Bangladeshi ones.
