Imayouiro (Pink) - a modern colour during the Heian period, derived from the safflower
Kokeiro (Green) - inspired by the moss found on rocks of Kyoto's famous gardens
Yamabukiiro (Yellow) - the colour of the yellow rose flower (yamabuki)
Aonibi (Blue black) - The dignified air of a moonlit sky over Kyoto
Adzukiiro (Dark red Purple) - the colour of Japanese red beans
Hisoku (Blue green) - inspired by traditional jade ceramic glazes
Urahairo (Grey Green) - literally meaning the underside of leaves
