Little Greene is an independent, British paint manufacturer, which also produces high quality wallpapers, which are a beautiful complement to the company's paint palette. Each highly individual collection employs specialist printing methods on the finest grade papers, which gives the wallpapers a sophisticated texture, elegant appearance - and durability.
The paper comes from FSC or PEFC certificated sustainable forests, so for every tree used another four are planted. The pigments used to print them are completely non-toxic and the company's wallpaper paste contains no solvent. So, Greene by name, green by nature. In recent times English Heritage has teamed up with Little Greene, to produce a stunning range of wallpapers based on historic papers in its archives.
In 2005 the very successful heritage colours paint range - ‘The Colours of England’ - was launched, and, building on this success they have now launched the exciting new ‘London Wallpapers’ range, based on fragments of papers that have been collected over many years and archived at Kenwood House in London. Although not exact copies of the original, all the papers in this range retain that traditional feel. The designs have been re-scaled and re-coloured and produced using modern manufacturing methods. Some of the papers, such as the flocks, reflect closely the archive document whilst others achieve a more modern appeal through the use of vivid colours and metallic finishes.
