Sixty-five thousand years ago, ancient artists in Spain were mixing pigments and applying them to the walls of caves to create the first known works of art. Today, painting is a great way to express yourself and to let your thoughts out, and with colors you are able to create a nicer and more colorful environment for you and your family.

The fantastic world of color is an essential part of our human nature: from children’s paints, chalks, and crayons, to fine-liners, gel pens, and aquarelles – the world’s natural vibrancy is reflected in the materials we use to create beautiful things. We offer a broad range of high-quality pigments, pigment preparations (aqueous dispersions based on pigments) and dyes that meet the strictest international environmental, health, and safety standards.
