Our ethos:

We stand for simple values of quality, craftsmanship and sustainability.  Our products are natural and our packaging has been fully considered to ensure we bring you the finest quality products that can uphold the best possible ethical values.

Our products are designed to reduce waste in the paint industry by allowing people to mix their own colours and by providing paint as a concentrate. We also aim to reduce furniture waste and minimise new purchases by teaching and facilitating up-cycling and re-purposing. Our products are manufactured by Roman Products, a UK Zero Waste Company, our fabric items are handmade in the UK from off-cuts and end of rolls and our packaging is from UK manufacturers who use recycled glass and plastics.

Your colour; your texture; your finish.

We have spent several years developing Nina’s Chalk Pot.  We wanted to be able to give you ultimate control and individuality over your colour and finish.  We are committed to providing the best quality products, hand-crafted here in Norfolk, England. Our kits provide everything you need to complete a number of projects.
