While brighter colors grab our attention and stir our emotions, we tend to underestimate the power of the many shades of grey that soothe our minds and moderate our moods. Tibet is a land where bright colors can look their brightest, enhanced by the rarified atmosphere and set on a background of subtler tones. Nature is filled with greys, not only in the background, but in powerful and prominent roles all around.
Norlha works with the three natural shades of the yak, and the most versatile of these is the beautiful warmth of the grey yak, about 10% of animals in any given herd. In researching our subtler colors, we found a wealth of inspiration from the natural environment around Norlha; in the rocks, the sky, the clouds, and the slate used as flagstones that run from the warmest and lightest to the coolest and darkest, with everything in between.
