Connected to Colour: Pink
I believe in pink...and I believe in miracles.
-- Audrey Hepburn
Pink is often associated with love and romance. Often thought of as a feminine colour, pink is associated with the qualities of softness, kindness, nurturance, and compassion.
Pink from NatureThe cochineal insect (Dactylopius coccus) is a gift from nature. It creates a glorious pink. Cochineal lives on the prickly pear cactus and is collected by brushing the insects off the plants.
Connecting to nature through colour takes time - a slow process. The artisan must gently coax the colour; following Old-World practices, using processes passed down through generations. But, in taking time, the colour stands the test of time, carrying a vibrancy that delights and a quality that improves with age.
