About Us

Back in 2001, Les G. Littlefair began stocking wood stain products in his Darwen based bric-a-brac shop and soon noticed how well the products sold.  As a joiner with an eye for perfection, he believed he could create an even better product that could enhance any untreated wood.  After months of perfecting a product that was easy to use, environmentally friendly and beautiful to look at, Les began selling his first range.  It wasn’t long until the success of his products enabled him to leave the bric-a-brac trade and concentrate on cultivating his own brand. 

Based in Blackburn these days, Littlefair’s are multi award winning manufacturers of water-based wood dyes, varnishes, finishing oils and wax polishes. In addition to selling online we supply a number of trusted stockists – find your nearest one here!

We were delighted recently to land the 2021 Distinction Award for Customer Service Excellence, awarded by SME News, as our values centre around providing the finest quality products and great customer service.  We believe in a personal touch, giving a unique service to our customers and encouraging them to get in touch if we can help in any way.  Often Les himself will reply! 

We possess a passion for British craftmanship which flows through our whole organisation, from the manufacturers and packers to the customer service team and we are proud to have cultivated an environment of honesty and integrity which filters down to our customers.

Being a family-run business, we ensure conscientious care and attention goes into each element of our production process, all the way up until the customer has finished their own project.

We are constantly developing new products to ensure you have everything you need to complete your projects, whether inside or out!  Please have a browse of our website and feel free to get in touch at the bottom right if you have any questions!
