Innovation is in the genes of the company.  The Montgolfier brothers invented the first hot-air balloon in 1782. But first and foremost, they were paper manufacturers. Over the centuries, the company created numerous manufacturing processes such as the Hollander beater to tear up rag, pulp dying to obtain uniform coloured paper, etc. They also innovated with vellum paper, then tracing paper in 1809. In 1865, Canson® obtained a patent for a photo paper which simplified printing operations.

Canson® continues to offer products in keeping with consumer expectations: school pack, technical drawing paper, fine art printing paper, papers for digital art printing and photos, etc.

Escoda Barcelona

The main goal of Josep Escoda Roig (1902-1982) is still very much present today, such as the way we work. We still manufacture our brushes and paintbrushes with the traditional process, the same one our past generations used. And we achieved something significant for us: to make tradition turned into art. And, of course, always looking for the adaption to new times and a continuous improvement.

To make the best brush possible, we keep in mind that our products are an industrial contribution to the artistic world. Escoda brushes are our contribution to artists all around the world. We are very proud of our role in art and our participation in fine arts for more than 85 years.
