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!
