We distinguish ourselves by closely monitoring the dynamic market so that we can offer specialist retailers a carefully selected range where innovative products are paramount.                   

We ensure that these products, equipped with comprehensive product-related information, are readily available via our advanced webshop. Consumers can also visit our webshop however they cannot log in nor see any price information.

Besides commercial products, Craftlines also offers products under its own brand. Pergamano is the brand that in 1988 formed the foundation of the enterprise and obviously is an important pillar in the segment Paper.

I always enjoy an in-depth conversation with a critical but satisfied customer. Especially when points emerge that we, with our team of professional staff, can work with on improving our service. That‘s why I like to keep in contact with as many retail customers as I can. I hope to meet up with you on one of the trade fairs or during one of my shop visits.

With kind regards,

Peter Venema, director





History

Craftlines B.V. was founded in 1988 under the name Marjo-Arte B.V. by Martha Ospina and her husband Tiemen Venema. Based on Targeteria, a South American “cards make art”, they developed the product line Pergamano which they successfully put on the market. Staying close to the people utilizing their product was an important strength in their success.

Peter Venema, the son of Tiemen Venema, took over the company in 1997 and continued under the name Pergamano International. In the period that followed the focus was on the international spread of the Pergamano hobby concept.

The 1-brand-strategy was cut loose in 2005 and the company took on the distributorship of Art Clay Silver, initially only for the Benelux but latterly also for France. The Pergamano activities took place under the trade name Pergamano International and the Art Clay Silver distribution initially under Art Clay Benelux. Given the changes, a new name was wanted for the B.V so since 2008 the company has operated under the name Craftlines B.V.

In 2013 we believe it’s time to set up our own distribution branch and launch ourselves as wholesaler and manufacturer of hobby products.
