About Pebeo

The company Pebeo was founded in 1919. They have been developing high quality art supplies for almost an entire century. The products also extended to craft projects. You can get paints to make glasses appear like stained glass windows. There are also other types of paints that have some interesting unique effects to them. Originally, the Pebeo was a chemical company. Around the 1930, guessing that the lead business was going under, an employee who rose in the ranks, named Claudius Chaveau had the insight to invest in paints. Using the original framework for processing leads, he had Pebeo develop oil paints. A century later, his son and current CEO of the company continues with his father’s vision. He has expanded the production line to include drawing tools like markers, charcoals and pastels.
