According to Asthma UK’s website, one in every 11 children has asthma with symptoms often starting in childhood. While ground-breaking research from a team of scientists from Harvard University and Sweden’s Kalstad University has also found that children who sleep in bedrooms containing fumes from water-based paints and solvents are two to four times more likely to suffer allergies or asthma.
Little Knights offers a high-quality range of hand-picked colours and the ability to fight back against germs, bacteria and pollution in the home by being 100% VOC-free and anti-bacterial while also helping to absorb formaldehyde from the air.
Mark Gardner, founder of Little Knights, said he was delighted to be able to support the charity through donations and awareness. Mark said:
“Launching Little Knights, we were very clear that we also wanted to promote awareness and key health messages. I felt Little Knights was a real game-changer in terms of quality and safety and I want to use that to support the fantastic work of Asthma UK.”
“The links between paint fumes and breathing difficulties are well documented. I was driven by a desire to create the first truly safe paint for the family home. We have spent a long time creating and refining this product as we wanted to produce something that would be the benchmark for safer paint across the whole of Europe.
“I have devoted my working life to striving for excellence and I am incredibly proud of Little Knights. The quality of this product is second-to-none but it also does more to protect your family than you ever thought a paint could do.”
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!)
