In response to Jennifer’ s Color your world challenge with the 88th color – Royal Purple.

The Color your World challenge will run January through April, for 120 days, with a new Crayola color topic posting each day so it will be somewhat challenging but a great fun as well.

  1. Too pretty to dust with! 🙂 I like it very much!

    • When I saw this rag and many other with a beautiful print I wanted all of them, but this was the coolest! ☺ Thanks for you comment!

  2. It’s cute. Great shot, Majka.

  3. The more traditional name for Royal purple is Tyrian Purple, from the city states of Tyre and Sidon of ancient Phoenicia. The purple dye was made from the excrement of a certain sea snail, and the secret of this dye was a Phoenician secret.
    Due to this monopoly, the dye was incredibly expensive, and where its alternate name, royal purple originated.
    This made the Phoenician states one of the foremost Mediterranean trade empires, and what eventually brought them into conflict with Rome, and led to their ultimate conquest and destruction (the salting of Carthage).
    Amazing choice of colour, because it has an incredible history behind it. Imagine that, a color that founded a rival empire, a colour which led to an inevitable war.

    • Thanks for your explanation, I have learnt something new today ☺

    • I always wonder about the names of the colors. Thank you!

      • You’re welcome
        All the colours from antiquity to the middle ages have origins behind them. Some of them are quite interesting like lapiz blue (they ground lapiz lazuli into a paste).
        Have a read on wikipedia sometime! They can be really fascinating!

      • I think I am going to check them out ☺
