Here at Little Knights we are driven to help increase awareness of this potentially life-threatening condition, and the effects that normal paint can have on it. In support, we are offering a 10% discount on every order of Little Knights paint sold on May 2nd.
Children with bedrooms containing fumes from conventional water-based paints and solvents are 2 to 4 times more likely to suffer from allergies or asthma. This is due to the harmful chemicals in them called ‘Volatile Organic Compounds’, VOCs for short.
Conventional paints, and even paints ‘low-VOC’ contain the most hazardous of these VOC’s called PGE. “They are marketed as being ‘100% natural’ and ‘low-VOC’ to make people think they are buying a safe paint," says Mark the Little Knights founder, "but recent research has shown that even low-VOC water-based paint can be harmful for children. This is why I created and tested a formulation where we know that every single pigment and resin we are using is completely harmless and 100% VOC-free. Little Knights is simply as safe as paint gets.”

We are so committed to this cause that we have pledged to donate £1 from the sale of every tin of Little Knights ever sold to Asthma UK; the leading UK asthma charity.
Asthma UK works to raise awareness of asthma, supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life threatening asthma attack and, ultimately, find a cure by funding world leading research and scientists.
For a solid, flat and elegant finish that is easy to touch up when required, matte paint is ideal for creating a gentle, soothing finish. It helps to conceal flaws too, making it a good choice for older walls with "character".
Has slightly more lustre than a matte finish, low-sheen rather than shiny. This attractive finish resists stains better than matte paint, and is easier to maintain
Creates an attractive and highly durable high sheen finish, an ideal choice if you want to make a room look bigger. While it is the easiest to clean (just wipe with a damp cloth) Silk paint’s light reflecting properties do make it more difficult to touch up because any difference in sheen will be apparent. It will make imperfections in your walls more noticeable, so it is worth investing a bit of extra time on surface preparation to make your walls as smooth as possible.
Even our gloss paint is zero-VOC! An easy-to-apply, non-drip antibacterial gloss paint that provides a hardwearing, wipe-clean finish for interior and exterior wood and metal. (Please note, the gloss does not share the formaldehyde-absorbing properties of the emulsion paint, but there's still no safer gloss paint on the market!)
