Nostalgic History - Panhue dye, NZ

Updated: Apr 14

I was given a small jar with an old label on it, showing that it had held some dye from the Panhue company, Auckland NZ. Silly me washed the jar for recycling, and removed much of the label before thinking I should have at least taken a photo for posterity ... we live and learn (hopefully).


Anyway, as I have an interest in history I wanted to learn more about this company which obviously wasn't around any longer. I had a vague feeling that I'd heard the name before, but it was likely from many, many years ago. I did some internet research, but so far have come up with very few mentions.


An advertisement in a New Zealand Crafts magazine from 1985:


from Issue 14, Winter

I'd love to hear from anyone who remembers this product.
