Increasingly we are moving in a direction of better, kinder, friendlier products which are made from natural resources or recycled materials. “But what about the compromise on colour!”, I hear you cry. Fear not, for long gone is the time of limited colour-schemes with a slightly dodgy finish. This latest addition to the scene is Earthborn. A environmentally-friendly British paint-company which unfortunately doesn’t have its own stores as yet but has no shortage of stockists, both on the high street and on-line. Earthborn are one of the few paint companies to have been awarded the EU Ecolabel which means that it’s the best alternative for a healthier paint for both planet and homeowner. Their Claypaint range I am particularly interested in as it gives an almost tangible matt finish which looks thick and luxurious. Now, if you want neon-pops, this might not be the brand for you but if gentle hues and muted brights are what you’re interested in then I definitely recommend having a look through their ranges. If you want a more hands on exploration, then pop into your local branch of Lombok for a closer look. Lombok have partnered with Earthborn which is a good business-thinking, if you ask me.
Visit Earthborn or ring: 01928 734171, for more information and stockists. Available in tester pot, 2.5l and 5l size pots.
