Little Greene is an independent British paint manufacturer committed to the socially and environmentally responsible production of high quality paints and wallpapers. Based in Collyhurst Woods on the outskirts of Manchester, the Little Greene Dye Works has records dating back to 1773, making it one of England's oldest industrial sites for the production of paints and dyes.

The company has worked with English Heritage since 2005 to create period paints and stunning wallpaper designs inspired by historical documents from our archives. Most recently, the range of paint colours has been adapted to feature in a new range of wooden venetian blinds produced by Decorshade.
