The history of Canson® spans nearly half a millennium since the factory was born in 1557 in the small hamlet of Vidalon, now a neighborhood in Annonay Ardeche, and developed through the Montgolfier family.
Its development and destiny are intertwined with the history of France and the history of Art. Rooted in tradition, Canson® respects this heritage and its duty to always provide consumers with outstanding paper.
Canson® is a brand of excellence. But we are also a company which seeks to provide simple solutions to the needs of consumers, whether they are professional artists or school children.
