About Falu Rödfärg

Among 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 an expanding range of products for buildings and homes. Over the years, the original residue pigment paint has been developed into new colours and paint series.
