Pro Arte is a British, family run, company which has managed to maintain a factory in Skipton, North Yorkshire since it was founded in 1973. They have successfully brought together traditional and synthetic materials and although machinery is used where advantageous, many of the final processes are hand finished to sustain the quality and consistency.  Pro Arte continues to look at new techniques and tools to improve their range. Testament to their quality is their enviable record of collaboration in brush development with artists.
