J. Herbin Ink Color Names.. Who Knew?

Stephanie

Did you ever question the names of J. Herbin’s inks? From what I understand,  the chosen names for each color are  poetic to preserve the originality of the brand, and as a French tradition.

For Example: Rose Tendresse shown above, whose name translates to English as “Tenderness Pink,” This is the rose of love and the flowers of the same name and symbol of love. The color represents the feeling of love and also tenderness shared by 2 lovers.

You can read about each of the names of the 30 inks on the J Herbin website. While you are there, feel free to poke around the rest of the site. Lost of great information to be found!

  1. J. Herbin inks are great! It’s amazing to think the J. Herbin company has been making inks since 1670! That’s over a hundred years before the US came into existence! We stock some J. Herbin inks and I hope to expand our stock in the new future because they are truly beautiful.
