Arte supplies the highest quality counter tops and materials for kitchens, catering establishments, coffee corners for offices, washbasins for luxury hotels, and more. All of our work is done in consideration of the environment and the well-being of all people involved. It is anchored in our DNA. And that’s why one stone - no matter how big or small - can make all the difference. This philosophy of ours starts with where we source our materials. Together with independent organizations, we check whether the material is obtained fairly and if the working conditions are up to our high standards. Worldwide, 63 million children aren’t going to school. With our Arte Right To Education project, we work with NGO’s to end child labour around quarries in South India, and to increase their access to education. In addition, we are committed to preventing child marriage, and we provide health and safety training fit for the working conditions. Our end goal is to create the greatest possible positive impact, and to contribute to the well-being of everyone involved with Arte, both now and in the future.
