Purple is a strong color that can really turn super vibrant when matched with other colors. It's a bold color that makes a statement!
History of Purple
Through history, purple was traditionally worn by royalty and people of high rank and authority.

Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce strength of red. Purple also represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.
