Purple, lilac, violet, lavender, magenta...

Since ancient times, the color purple - has been a symbol of power and piety.
In those times purple dye was very expensive, so robes of purple indicated the royal family
Shades of purple are associated with sacred knowledge and magic. As a general rule, in many cartoons, drawing and films the apparel of fairies, elves and fairy tale creatures are in shades of purple.
Purple - is an original color of nature, you can find it easily in many flowers,  vegies, gems, insects, sea creatures etc.

I love this color -  rich palette, bright effect and variety.

Cherry Garden PR manager Choila does not mind purple also

Pink bloom

Pink color - the traditional color of  kindness, love, tenderness and passion. This color is most associated with charm, politeness and sensitivity. Pink palette -  very feminine and romantic.

We love to make toys of pink colors fabric in our workshop. Of course I prefer most of all the pure silk with shimmering effect, but I suppose the cotton is better for  nursery deco and  toddler toys. So cozy and cute!
