ARTEBENE is a family-owned company in Lüdinghausen situated in the heart of the Münsterland region. Being located not far from the beautiful university city of Münster and the Ruhr Area, each and every ARTEBENE product is created here. From the development to shipping out the final product - everything goes hand in hand.

Driven by a lot of enthusiasm and creative leeway as well as flat hierarchies, we work in a team of approx. 40 people in design, logistics, sales and marketing at our HQ in Lüdinghausen.

Heart of the team is our own Design Studio, consisting of professionals from a variety of backgrounds such as fashion design and graphic arts. They develop each of our products to the tiniest detail - aided by scissors, pencils, glue, hand, heart and head. This is how our products are created at ARTEBENE.

We love and develop everything that has to do with gift wrapping, writing and giving, and we would like our products to become also your favourites. They are supposed to make life just that little bit nicer, no matter if they are given as little tokens, as beautiful gifts for your favourite person or just to reward yourself.

ARTEBENE is established in Lüdinghausen in 1985. A lot has changed since then. Having started with just 2 employees, staff has grown quickly to 40 – and also our product range has been extended continuously. ARTEBENE quickly became a substantial supplier to retailers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
In the course of a succession in 2005, the company’s founders hand the baton over to today’s owners – Beate and Dr. Rüdiger Kress. Their declared aim: Developing the German supplier to a European brand.

In 2007, the subsidiary ARTEBENE S.a.r.l. is established in Sarreguemines, France, following our conviction: All business is local.

ARTEBENE Limited is founded in 2008. The company is situated in South London and is our base for looking after our customers in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. We invoice in both Pound Sterling and Euros.

Finally, in 2010, ARTEBENE Papel y Diseño S.L. is established in Barcelona. Our South European sales force as well as our showroom in Sant Cugat are the backbone for optimal support for our customers in Spain, Portugal and Greece.
Our designers are the first to move to our new home in 2011 – the “Red Office” at Werner-von-Siemens-Strasse, Luedinghausen. The head office’s team follow a year later, comprising our colleagues from Purchasing, Customer Service, Bookkeeping and Marketing.
In 2012, our new central warehouse is built right next to the “Red Office”. The hard-working warehouse and logistics staff make our team complete.
Today, our headquarters is the base for looking after retailers in 24 of the 28 EU countries. Here, also enquiries from all over the world are responded to.
Since 2015, we have been pursuing various projects in order to push ahead digitalisation in our company. Among others, we have redesigned our B2B online shop and started to introduce a digital price list for enhancing our service level.
In 2017, we renewed and formulated our performance promise to our retail partners and embedded it in a continuous process of improvement. For this integral approach, we have received the German Brand Award. 
2018: In order to further intensify ARTEBENE’s sustainability approach, the owners have appointed a CSR commissioner. An internal team regularly pursues specific projects in coordination with the general management and put them into action. In addition to many sustainability-related product improvements, we have consequently transposed the UN Global Compact’s directives in our supply chains and screen the results regularly.
Since 2019: Within the framework of our CSR initiatives, we have taken on godparenthood for a girl in Cambodia. Moreover, we have also been a climate neutral company since that year.
