Introducing: Argile Laque Mate. This is the most durable matte paint we know of

A matte finish on paints looks beautiful and is pleasing to the eye, but many are concerned that such paint may not wash well and quickly lose its new appearance. Typically, high-quality premium paints are free from this issue. “Intelligent Matt” by Little Greene, “Architects’ Matt” by Paint & Paper Library, and “Mat Velouté” by Argile have a sheen level of only 3-4%, yet they clean excellently with non-alkaline cleaning agents.

However, if you need to paint walls in high-traffic areas — for example, in cafes and other public interiors or, let’s say, in a children’s room — we recommend opting for “Laque Mate” paint: it is the most durable matte paint in the range of the French manufacturer Argile.
