Bancha

No.298

A protective olive green


This mid-century modern green is a darker version of the much loved archive colour, Olive. Perfect for those who want to embrace stronger colour in the home, its sober tone creates rooms that feel calm and serene - especially when combined with soft pinks and browns. Named after Japanese tea leaves, Bancha, like a cup of green tea, provides a feeling of security.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Shaded White

Product Information 
ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it We bought it for the hall, and have matched it with Bone Its a wonderful colour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shade of tropical green Delighted with the rich olive shade of Bancha. Two coats and a touch up was all that was needed. I painted the wall behind deep oak shelves. The luscious green shade complemented the mid-oak perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Colour I bought this a month ago and painted my bedroom walls with it. I am so glad I chose this colour as it adds depth and the shade of green shifts with the changing light. Makes a smaller room feel more cosy and at one with nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colour as expected. Painted the walls of my garage a couple of weeks ago. Masonry paint went on easily and was true to colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy to work with Paint applies easily and dries perfectly, perfect finish. Higher price than dept store but you get what you pay for I guess

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I bought this beautiful green to paint part of the walls in my new shop and I couldn’t be more happy! Got loads left over so might end up now in my kitchen or statement wall in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Classic I've painted my north facing living room in Bancha and I'm so pleased with it. It's a strong green which at times looks almost brown / khaki, at times more olive. It replaced Calke Green, which was much more traditional and masculine. It is dark but bright, modern but classic, and feels a bit 70s too. It's gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! First time users of Farrow & Ball but definitely won’t be our last. Yes you pay more for the paint but it really is worth it, this is a quality product. Paint goes on easily and covers really well and we are so happy with the finished product. The colour changes depending on the lighting and has such a deep warm feel
