For nearly fifty years Nitram refined the process of charcoal making in the heart of France.
Started by Martin Gros, (hence the name, Martin spelled backwards) it was a family company until moving, along with the original oven and processes, to Canada.
Nitram Charcoal has become known by artists & the Preferred Charcoal of Professional Artists, Academies and Ateliers around the globe due to it's unique qualities.
Manufactured using a unique process that preserves the cell structure of the wood.
This makes the charcoal more durable & less prone to breakage, whilst being easy to erase, able to be sharpened to a point & generate less dust than comparable products.
