To describe the color it is a deep, reddish brown, or as Pantone describes it is “a naturally robust and earthy wine red.”

Some designers (fashion, grapics and interior) was not happy with this color as they feel the color is too sad and very “fall”. Some say it is the color of blood and rust a color that is not so possitive. Others think it is too retro color and can be used as accent color.
