Beige

Beige is a color that is often described as soft, creamy, and light. It is typically a pale yellowish brown, but can also be quite pale or quite dark depending on the specific shade. Beige can be found in a variety of materials, including natural fibers like cotton and wool, as well as synthetic materials like polyester. The color beige is believed to have originated from the Arabic word "bayz," which means "to dye." Beige was first used as a color for dyeing clothes, and it wasn't until the 1800s that beige began to be used as a color for painting and other forms of art. Today, beige is a popular color for both clothing and home decor, as it is considered to be both versatile and timeless.
