Quality since 1790.

  • Handicraft
  • History
  • Raw materials
  • Worldwide distribution

Thanks to our experience covering four different centuries, our craftsmanship has been perfected. However, we are constantly moving forward in the development, rewriting the limits of possibilities.

Thus, we are able to provide our customers with products tailored to their special requirements.

In 1790 Joseph Hardtmuth laid the foundations of the company from which his grandson Franz has created one of the world's largest companies producing and distributing art, school, and office supplies of the highest quality.

After almost 230 years, we still maintain the traditional Czech brand on the global top in our field.

When choosing raw materials, we emphasize first-class quality and health harmlessness.

Whether we are talking about FSC wood from Siberian cedars, rich pigments, or meeting the strictest standards, we always make sure you take home only the best you can get!
