    Purple was once a colour reserved for Royal’s. It was a difficult colour to create. Dye was made from sea shells, mussels in fact.
    It took huge amounts of shells to make so common folks were not allowed to wear it.
    Thought you might like to know that Kasia!
    Stunning artwork BTW :o) xx

  • Thank you Mr. WIKI Brown – I didn’t know that little gem of information.
