We live in a colourful world! DYLON celebrates this fact more than most, having brought colour to the wardrobes, homes and lives of people the world over for more than 60 years.
The 40s & the 50s
In 1946 DYLON – ‘Dyes of London’ – was founded by two young entrepreneurs, Luca Purbeck and Peter Samuel who began selling colourful dyes from a garage in central London.
From those humble beginnings DYLON went on to thrive in ‘make-do & mend’ post war Britain making fabric dyes to brighten up the homes, wardrobes and spirits of families across the country.
The company continued to grow throughout the rock and roll years of the 1950s and over the next few decades DYLON went global, selling coloured dyes to over 70 countries around the world.
