Today’s Kona cotton color of the day is Pewter.

I don’t really have much to say about this color, except that it is a nice neutral grey. According to Wikipedia pewter was first used around the beginning of the Bronze Age. The first known piece was found in an Egyptian tomb, c. 1450 BC. Pewter was used for decorative metal items and tableware by the Egyptians and later the Romans. In the early 19th century pewter was used for plates, dishes, basins, spoons, teapots, beer steins, and cream jugs, but later in the century changes in fashion caused a decline in the use. Today pewter is use in decorative objects.
