About us

We are a family run business. We opened our factory in 2000. Since then we provided the public with the best quality paint, at factory prices. After years of research we were finally able to open a Chalk Paint division, providing the public with our amazing Range of Chalk paints. Just a stone trough away from the cradle of human kind in Krugersdorp you will find our factory. This is the home and birth place of the famous South African chalk paint brand, Kalkie Craft. Just like the history of mankind, this is where the magic of all the vintage colours of the Kalkie Craft chalk paint comes together and the creative journey begins. With this magical colours we take the old and forgotten and give it a new beginning. With our products you can give your friends and family a piece of art, made from a piece of your heart. That will also be remembered for years to come. Let the Kalkie Craft colours bring out the artist inside of you.

When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it. They just saw something.
