The James Cropper brand colour, Kendal Green, has an illustrious pedigree.
Kendal Green cloth was made at our mill in Burneside half a millennium before paper took over. Moreover, it was famously worn by Kendalian archers at the battle of Agincourt and later even referenced by Shakespeare in Henry IV.
Extensive research identified the original pigments used to dye Kendal Green cloth: woad (blue) and dyers’ broom (yellow). Through the Tailor Made process, samples of the pigments were sourced and matched to papermaking dyes that were used to make paper for new branded stationery and packaging.
