An Upstate manufacturer said their Spartanburg-made paint is so fresh it feels like the outdoors and is safe for children.
The product, Lullaby Paints, is a splash of color in the business of environmentally friendly products.
"Lullaby Paints are a safe paint for babies' nurseries," said Julian Crawford with Imperial Paints. "We designed it specifically for them."
Imperial Paints is based in Spartanburg and said their line of Lullaby Paints are made by parents and future parents for babies and children. Each eco-friendly color is non-toxic and kid safe.
"Traditional paints have got solvents, chemicals, glycols in them that are harmful for children, and we've made a paint that has none of them in it," said Crawford.
The paints come in 32 different odorless colors, as well as pastels of blue and pink that are perfect for the nursery. There are even 16 shades of chalkboard paint. Crawford said it is even safe for children to use the paint themselves.
"We let children use that so we sell a little kit which comes with an applicator and roller," said Crawford. "And we let children put the paint on the walls themselves they put it up a design to it too."
Lullaby Paints have been made in Spartanburg for a year and are finding their way onto shelves in 20 specialty stores along the East Coast. The paint is sold locally at Pickles and Ice Cream in Greenville and Martha's Fabrics in Spartanburg.
The company hopes its paint will make the walls of nurseries across the Upstate safe and chemical-free.
Crawford said they are selling them at stores where parents are designing nurseries, where they are picking colors as they are picking out cribs and furniture.
"They may as well pick the paint at the same time," said Crawford.
The company also makes paint that purifies the air and electromagnetic shielding paint. Many of their speciality products will run two to three times the price of regular paint since it costs more to make it.
