Monochrome Monday: The Teal Green Edition

Throughout history, this balanced blue-green shade has represented harmony, faith, and tranquillity across many cultures. The ancient Egyptians and Tibetans saw teal as symbolic of eternity, closely associating it with spiritual concepts as seen through Its prominent use in grand architecture throughout history.

In 1990s fashion, many sports franchises and fashion labels adopted teal into their branding, making it a defining shade of that decade. The reason why is simple, psychologically, teal is plainly calming, and often time hints at both introversion and self-expression, a balance of two opposites. Today, teal continues captivating through myriad mediums and slow fashion trends that celebrate balance.
