The people of India call this pink the ‘queen’s color’

Inspired by the shades of the lotus, Indian Pink ranges from the bright ‘rani pink’ (the queen’s pink) to pastel tones.  Making an appearance in architecture, textiles and food, this unique pink tone is an integral part of the Indian sensibility.  We have curated some interesting images featuring this color which also give a glimpse into the incredible Indian culture.
