The Many Variations of Purple Comforter Sets

Once considered as a color only for royalty and the very wealthy aristocrats, purple today can be used and afforded by anyone for anything, including purple comforter sets in their bedrooms. This rich shade, which is between the colors of crimson and violet, has been worn by Alexander the Great, Egyptian Pharaohs, and Roman Emperors. Through the ages, purple has been depicted in paintings and used on artifacts that showed it in connection with aristocrats and not ordinary people.

In large part this was because the cost of making it from the shell of sea snails was prohibitive. However, by the mid Nineteenth Century, a process was discovered to get the color from a flower and after that purple started becoming available and fashionable for everyone. It was the color associated by the suffragettes and continued on to the women’s liberation movement. The Nazis used it as a symbol of prisoners of certain religions that were not in the mainstream. The counter-culture in America featured it in their songs and the anti-apartheid groups in South Africa took it as their color of protest.
