Steeped in Mythology, Myth and Legend, the colour Purple has a fascinating history. Favoured by royalty around the world, it was originally made from sea snails from the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. Hercules's dog was said to first discover the snails. Those poor widdle snails somehow still exist, despite the incredible demand for "Tyrian" purple throughout the ages. It wasn't until the late 1850's that a non-animal dyestuff was discovered by accident while trying to find an alternative to costly malaria treatments.

The herbs you'd need to waft in front of your face to avoid the scent of stinky sea snail dye. How regal?
