Pebeo was established in 1919 in Marseille as a chemical company which quickly specialised in colour. From discovering new colours in the early days of ready-made paint colours to leading the mixed-media innovations, Pebeo is well established in the art materials industry. With well over 50 years of experience working with artisans around the world, Pebeo has invested heavily in creative leisure activities, to make a variety of crafts such as fabric, glass and ceramic painting affordable for all. The commitment of all our professional and craft partners is testimony to Pebeo’s key role in driving marketing development.
As one of the most recent players on the Fine Arts and Graphic Arts colour market specialising in the 'Alchemy of Art', Pebeo combines the technical knowledge of a high-tech, research laboratory of technicians and chemists with artists across the world to create high-quality, genuinely innovative products, on a mission to vibrantly change artworks. Pebeo has made a name for itself by working closely with students, graphic designers, amateur and professional artists. Through this collaboration, major innovations have appeared for the brand to have successfully positioned itself at the crossroads between tradition and modernity.
