We recently discovered Aussie company Bauwerk, purveyor of chalky, nontoxic limewash paints. Started in 2000 by a German stonemason and an Australian textile designer, Bauwerk paints are nontoxic and suitable for indoors and out.
Above: Bauwerk offers more than 150 colors, designed to flatter both modern and traditional buildings. Bauwerk paints are available in Australia, the Middle East, and Europe.
Above: Bauwerk paints are made with clay, minerals, and natural pigments—never plastics—so they are free of fumes and disposal is safe down the drain.
Above: Bauwerk Inside Paint is ideal on masonry surfaces such as cement and bricks, but it can also be used on already-painted walls when paired with Unter Sealer & Undercoat.
Above: If you already have a color in mind but want the Bauwerk nontoxic version, you can upload an image and use Bauwerk’s Color Picker to find the right shade.
