About Royal Talens

Creativity is one of the most powerful human assets. It stimulates our ability to express ourselves, to learn and to connect. It has the power to make the world a better place. Ever since we discovered that in 1899, it has been our goal to stimulate as many people possible to express their creativity.


Creative empowerment

We truly believe creativity is in each and every one of us. That’s why we enable creativity for everyone, and engage creativity in everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced professional, inspired hobbyist or are just starting to think about being more creative. We understand that creativity sometimes needs a little push. Some new inspiration, a goal, or motivation.


We’re here for you

Let us give you the energy to find your creativity and provide you with the very best tools to fuel it. From colourful acrylics and excellent oil paint to subtle fineliners and pencils for kids. You name it. Royal Talens has everything you need to create your own art. So, pick up that brush. Make this your best work yet. And express yourself in a way only you can. Let it out!

The vision of Royal Talens

We believe creative expression brings out the best in everyone. It has the power to stimulate mind, body and soul and should therefore be enabled all over the world. As the preferred supplier in the creative colour industry, we are dedicated to make this happen.

The mission of Royal Talens

'Royal' Designation

Queen Wilhelmina was a great Talens fan. She used it on a daily basis. In addition to being queen, Wilhelmina was an artist who had a love and passion for her hobby. This made her feel closely connected to Talens.

In 1949 she wanted the world to know this. She made Talens Royal. Because Royal Talens has the same passion artists have. Not to create the most beautiful work, but to produce and develop the best paint and artists’ materials, as it has been for the last 115 years. Such as the well known brands Rembrandt and Van Gogh, but also new innovations such as Cobra.

Thanks to this great Queen we are called Royal Talens.

And to this day we have lived up to the highest of Royal standards, both as manufacturer and employer.
