Passion for colour, talent and the choice to transform

TColors is the result of putting together the passion for color, professional talent and the power of social transformation

TColors is a brand promoted by Grup Cooperatiu TEB. TEB was born in 1965 with a clearly transformative vocation. A group of 7 families imagined a world in which people with disabilities could access employment and also carry out life projects with autonomy. And with that purpose, they started up the TEB cooperative in the Barceloneta neighborhood.

Today our entity generates employment and support for 800 people with intellectual disabilities and offers accompanying services so that they can have an independent life.

The TColors project started in 1995, when the talent of a creative professional team specialized in the production of paint, the power of transformation that represents Grup Cooperatiu TEB and the passion for color were mixed together.

“T” for Transformation. At TEB we fight to change our environment, make it more inclusive, sustainable and diverse. To do this, we promote projects that generate employment, we offer support to people with disabilities so that they can develop their own independent life projects.

“T” for Talent. We believe in people, in their innate talent to contribute to our society; we just have to adapt jobs. For this reason, at TEB we like to emphasize that we are 100% capables and we demonstrate it with such a demanding quality policy.

Passion for Colour. Art and creativity are essential in our society, as they inspire us, connect us emotionally and allow us to imagine a world full of possibilities.
