This beautiful colour,
Marjorelle Blue, was named after the artist Jacques Majorelle (March 7 1886 – October 14 1962), a French painter who’s most notable work is thought to be the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech, Morroco – a twelve acre botanical garden which Majorelle landscape designed between the 1920s and 1930s. Before Jacques Majorelle died, he had the receipe for Majorelle Blue patented, which has meant its reproduction is very costly.

BRISTOL ULTRAMARINE BLUE, a strikingly vibrant hue, which we understand is a very acceptable alternative to infamous Majorelle Blue.

Our ULTRAMARINE BLUE has been used for many decorative applications in retail, art galleries, theatre and film sets as well as for domestic and display decoration. This vibrant colour has been selected by the Conran Group who have utilized our BRISTOL ULTRAMARINE BLUE in their stores in the UK, as well as in France and the USA.

The paints vivid hue is perfect if a cooling, clear, and fresh aesthetic effect is desired.

Many colour aficionados have praised our ULTRAMARINE BLUE, claiming that its velvet hue is ‘as close and you can get’ to that of the original Majorelle Blue.

BRISTOL ULTRAMARINE BLUE, as with all our ‘PURE COLOUR Range’ is kept in stock ready for immediate dispatch.
