About British Colour Standard
Established 1931 - London, England. The art/design team of Jackie Piper & Victoria Whitbread have a shared love of colour & material exploration. Discovering an old colour dictionary in an Oxfam shop began a journey to re-establish this long forgotten brand. A treasure trove of colour & rich history revived in 2017, first established in 1931. Out of use since the 1950’s, Jackie & Victoria accurately scanned these original colour dictionaries. A digital colour reader established a profile for the many hundreds of colours created and first logged in the 1930’s and these original colours & names are used in all their current collections. Derived and inspired from nature, flora & fauna, as well as semi-precious stones & spices the main collections include many historic & special Royal colours, designed and used for coronations & special events. All designs are created in-house in London & have a sustainable or eco provenance. Sustainable, Eco & Fair Trade Collections. Contemporary design-led gifts & homewares for colour-lovers.
