Ochre : The color evokes earthy imagery. 
It gives an impression of depth & richness, of the traditional...This is a color that has for long fascinated me. Teamed with blues & reds this color has been used since ancient times in textiles & embroideries, to stunning effect. 

Spring is around the corner.. I am just back from a vacation in the plains of North India where fields are a riot of mustard. Couple this with Holi and you can't blame me for having color on mind - lots of it :) To share this very 'colored' emotion, here I am with a selection of products (most of them handmade), for our readers to feast on - all with a dash of OCHRE!

This is all so eye catching! A hand printed cushion, a door in Tunisia and an advent calendar featuring a streetscape from Amsterdam - I feel like opening each of these tiny flaps to see what's hidden inside..
