About Falu Rödfärg

In the middle of piles of gangue, historic buildings and next to the mine’s huge hole, Stora Stöten, are both the office and factory for Falu Rödfärg. In the same way as it has always been. It is also from the mine that we still take our most important raw material for Falu Rödfärg Original, the old mining gangue.

Falu Rödfärg is today a growing range of products connected to houses and homes. Over the years, the original slamfärg has been developed into new colours and paint series.

When did Falu Rödfärg actually start being produced?

The history of Falu Rödfärg

Falu Rödfärg is in many ways the story of Sweden through 250 years. During this time, countless meetings have taken place behind Falu red facades, where people have laughed, cried, loved and disagreed, gotten along, shared knowledge, thoughts and ideas and created the stories that have moved our country forward.

The name Falu Rödfärg is legally protected and may only be used on paint that contains pigments from the Falu mine. Our well-known logo with the red house gable was registered as a trademark in 1972, but the color has been manufactured by us since the 18th century. The brand guarantees that the content is Falu Red Paint.
