About Us - H.Blyth & Co.

H.Blyth & Co. was established in 1889 by Harry Blyth to supply Drawing Materials to the rapidly growing businesses in Victorian Manchester. After passing through several generations and moving from its original location in Deansgate, Blyth's shifted towards supplying art materials for amateur and professionals in 1994.

Now based in the creative, bohemian heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter over two floors, H.Blyth & Co. supplies the finest art and graphic materials from around the world. H.Blyth & Co. now offers its expansive art supplies range online to ship within the UK.
