TO INSPIRE EVERY ARTIST IN THE WORLD
Our mission to inspire every artist in the world voices our belief that there is an artist in everyone. Colart’s brands provide a wide range of products for creatives, regardless of skill level, from professional fine artists to hobbyists and students.
As a B Corp,™ we commit to using business as a force for good. We are counted among an industry community leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. Our commitment is founded on our vision to be the most sustainable house of leading creative brands.
WE ARE PROUD OF OUR FINE ART HERITAGE AND DEEP ROOTS THAT HAVE INSPIRED ARTISTS FOR CENTURIES.
Our oldest brand, Lefranc Bourgeois, was founded over 300 years ago and continues to be manufactured in France. The collective history of all our brands informs how we continue to produce tools of the highest quality. And drawing from our history enables us to develop innovative tools that fulfil the needs of every type of creativity.
From the paintbrush to the printing press - creative revolutions begin with the tools. Today, the tools are more powerful than ever and more readily available. Digital and traditional tools exist side by side, blurring boundaries; and we are commited to providing tools and services that will ensure that self-expression can cross any boundary.
Colart is owned by Lindéngruppen, a second-generation family business focusing on sustainable long-term development of industrial companies. Their purpose is to empower our companies to prosper and lead the transformation to a sustainable world.
Lindéngruppen aims to have positive impact and create shared and sustained societal value through their companies that include Colart, Beckers, Höganäs AB and Alex Begg.
They devote time and resources to a number of non-profit projects, believing in a responsibility to engage with local and communities through long-term and strategic partnerships with organisations within art, education and children's rights.
