Little Greene

300 Years of Decorative History

Little Greene Paints is an independent British manufacturer, committed to producing high-quality, environmentally responsible paints and wallpapers. Our products reflect over 300 years of decorative history, drawing from key periods of interior design to bring the best colours and patterns from the past into contemporary homes. 

Little Greene Story

At Little Greene, we are dedicated to the socially and environmentally responsible production of our high-quality paints and wallpapers. Referencing key periods from the 17th century to the late 20th century, we continuously research and breathe new life into historical colours and patterns. 

As a family-run business with a factory in the foothills of Mount Snowdon, North Wales, we are the only British paint maker still producing a complete range of traditional and modern finishes. Our portfolio includes interior and exterior paints, floor paints, and our signature range of hard-wearing, water-based ‘Intelligent Paints’, designed for today’s busy homes. 

The History

The Little Greene Dye Works of Collyhurst Wood, on the outskirts of Manchester, dates back to 1773, making it one of England's oldest industrial sites for paint and dye solutions. The principles of formulating and making paints have remained consistent, with much of the process still performed by skilled craftspeople rather than automated machines.

Eco-friendly Paint Credentials 

Our paints and wallpapers are among the highest quality available, created with a commitment to environmental responsibility. We use the finest natural, organic, and safe synthetic pigments, ensuring superb depth of colour, high covering power, and long-lasting durability. 

Collaborations in Colour 

In addition to our partnerships with interior design experts like Pooky Lighting, we collaborate with charities such as Breast Cancer Haven and prestigious institutions including the Whitworth Art Gallery and the Imperial War Museum North.
