#5 Lascaux Summer Series

Sustainable, consistent, long-lasting

Lascaux's innovation is to be constant. Our product philosophy is focused on a consistent and timeless range of the highest quality. Our aim is to raise people’s awareness of the richness of colour, to inspire them and to invigorate creative expression and a sense of beauty. For us, sustainability means producing paints and mediums with a long life and high yield.

Our strongest commitment is to ensure that our range remains unchanged over time and that our customers receive a consistent, high-quality product for years to come. These qualities are essential for artists, designers and everyone who paints. We can guarantee this continuity because we manufacture everything under our roof.

The consequence is a modular assortment that is clearly structured and deliberately concise. It consists of colours and painting mediums that can be used and combined in a variety of ways. This benefits the environment because we can process the ingredients to optimum effect, produce economically and - thanks to our own water treatment plant - take care of the precious natural ressource water.
