Harlequin Paints was started by three people back in 1999.
A paint applicator, a designer and a chemist. An unusual combination but one that has proved to be highly successful.
This puts us in a unique position amongst paint companies where we understand paint from concept to manufacture and the finished application.
Harlequin began by manufacturing waterbased Paint Technique products , this included Woodwashes (limewash) Colourwashes, Antique Glazes, Crackle Glazes and many more, Harlequin quickly developed a wide variety of sealers for all applications including our Cretesealer ( a sealer for Gypsum plaster), waterbased Furniture Varnishes, Cement and Wooden Floor Lacquers and now a comprehensive range of waterbased primers and of course our unique range of solvent free paints. The environment is important to us and this was taken into consideration when choosing to go solvent free.
Our factory is in Cape Town where we employ a friendly team. All our products are made by us in our factory and then sold to various retail outlets throughout South Africa and Namibia.
Customers are more than welcome to visit us in our new showroom at our Paarden Eiland factory whether it be for advice, Paint samples or just an informative chat.
