Much to the delight of artists everywhere, the renowned Nitram Fine Art Charcoal has returned. First introduced in 1962 and considered the best on the market, in recent years it had become difficult to obtain. Now, thanks to the determination of Jerzy Niedojadlo, who purchased the company and took over production, the near-mythic Nitram Fine Art Charcoal is again available for artists to enjoy. Inheriting the original techniques and processes of Nitram charcoal’s manufacture and honing the master’s process has ensured that its legacy as the best charcoal product in the world is honored. Nitram is the Preferred Charcoal of Professional Artists, Academies and Ateliers.
The unique manufacturing process produces a high-grade rich black charcoal that is neither compressed nor reconstituted. Unlike other charcoal, Nitram is less prone to breaking, splitting or excessive dusting. Nitram comes in different grades in colour-coded packs: B, HB and H, as well as Extra Soft grades in a variety of larger sizes.
