Although ARTO is unique for a number of reasons, maybe the number one reason is that we have been making handcrafted products in Southern California for over 50 years now.
Arto (our founder) started in Culver City back in 1966 and moved to Gardena in 1999 when we outgrew our space. Since then our factory has grown to a three building complex spread over 2 acres.
We make all ARTO products there from the raw materials up and visiting the factory is a great way to see our handcrafted clay and concrete production firsthand. Please find links below to sign up for our November and December tours and we hope to see you at the factory!
