Peter Campbell, the founder of P&P Campbell, Dyeworks had originally begun work in Perth in 1814, in Methven Street, with Archibald Campbell, possibly a relative. By 1819 Peter had set up his own business. By 1881 Campbells were buying its dyes from John Deas of Perth who supplied substances like indigo and madder to produce the colours. Following a disastrous fire in 1919 Campbells was taken over by Pullars. Pullars was established by a John Pullar who had been apprenticed to Peter Campbell in 1816.
