Craig & Rose Heritage
Established in 1829 by two young Scottish entrepreneurs James Craig & Hugh Rose, Craig & Rose became renowned for manufacturing superior quality paints, and professional painters and decorators quickly adopted it as their brand of choice. At that time, paint was milled and competitors used to grind raw materials twice. Always keen to go the extra mile, Craig & Rose were known for their triple grinding.
Over the years, Craig & Rose won numerous exciting contracts, such as painting the iconic Forth Bridge, manufacturing paint for St Paul’s Cathedral, palaces around the world and the South American Railway.

Today, Craig & Rose combine its heritage with current trend expertise to offer a variety of ranges for the modern home. Opt for period colours with their 1829 collection or bold decorative effects with Artisan. All Craig and Rose paints are crafted to guarantee the quality and performance that they are renowned for.
