Emerald Green- 2013’s Color of the Year


Check out the new fashions this year in green!

Every Year, Pantone unveils the color for the  year. This color then begins to show up in all kinds of products ranging from fashion
 (clothes and accessories like jewelry), furniture, cars and even dishes.
So this year the color is Emerald Green.  Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth and harmony. Rich Emerald Green also conveys luxury and money!

Did you know: 

In Ancient Egypt green was the symbol of regeneration and rebirth, and of the crops made possible by the annual flooding of the Nile. For painting on the walls of tombs or on papyrus, Egyptian artists used finely-ground malachite, mined in the west Sinai and the eastern desert- A paintbox with malachite pigment was found inside the tomb of King Tutankhamen. 

So What will YOU buy that is green this year?
