Here at Cass Art we know it can be hard to know what to choose when looking to buy an easel. There's so much choice, and so many great brands offer so many different types - where to start?
Mabef have been making easels and other wooden items for artists since 1948, originating in the basement of a furniture restorer's home in Ispra, Italy.
1. Raw material
All Mabef artists' easels are made from solid beechwood, sourced from certified geographical areas where reforestation is under control and guaranteed by the forestry commission. So these easels are a green way to paint, and offer you the most natural wood around!
Every Mabef product is designed to offer the best performance. Simple and elegant, they do their work well without over-complicated designs. They will last you a lifetime and the wood itself looks just as beautiful with age.
3. Sturdy and reliable
