ABOUT BROWN COLOUR
Brown is a natural, down-to-earth neutral colour. It is found in earth, wood, and stone. Brown means stability, reliability, and approachability and is often associated with all things natural or organic.
- The Japanese do not have a specific word for brown. Rather, they use more descriptive names such as “tea-color," "fox-color," and "fallen-leaf.”
- In India, brown is the colour of mourning because it resembles dying leaves.
- American Indians believe the colour brown represents the power of self-discipline.
