French paint manufacturer Ressource brings a fresh approach to the paint industry despite having been around since 1946. Long before it was trendy, they focused on eco-friendly practices making it no surprise the company has outlasted most other independent French paint manufacturers long after others have shuttered. Currently, the Provence-based Ressource produces more than 950 beautiful hues that the United States can finally get their hands on after they recently opened a new showroom in New York City. Since many of us hadn’t heard about the indie brand, we’re taking a closer look inside to see how they’re creating paint differently, in this bonus Deconstruction.
Ressource is a pioneering French high-end brand of decorative paints, which combines heritage and innovation since 1946. The manufacturing of paint starts by carefully mixing marble powder and water to create a base.
Through its core values of quality, authenticity, ethics, and generosity, Ressource uses the best products in the manufacturing of their paints, like Titanium Powder to achieve the best quality and highest opacity.
The roots of the company explain its great expertise in mineral pigments, as well as its sensitivity to environmental issues. Ressource is committed to use eco-friendly resins for over 20 years.
Ressource is well-known for their long-lasting experience in manufacturing paint, and state-of-the-art machinery to obtain their vast heritage color scheme.
Ressource’s paints are among the highest professional-quality products available, offering fantastic coverage, a large selection of finishes that are available for professionals and individual customers alike. Ressource pays close attention to every detail, including labeling, packaging and distribution.
Not only is Ressource a manufacturer, but also, they have their own laboratory. Ressource’s engineers can experiment creating new shades, but also run daily production tests, to verify their high standards of quality.

Every year, Ressource creates and makes a paint collection “signed” by a modern designer, architect….in order to continuously expand its range of color. Ressource’s new collections are always the result of encounters, affinities between people passionate about color. There are no rules, there is no strict timetable to release a new collection, some collaboration studies take longer than others. We are committed to creating inspiring colors to encourage the creativity of our clients. Ressource gives “carte blanche” to its partners to name their own colors.
Ressource’s paint manufacturing facility is situated in Provence, France, with an in-site application workshop where all catalogues, fan decks, and hand-painted samples are made.
