Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Raisin. Raisin is a dark brown with hints of a purple or maroon undertone.
I grew up loving those tiny little raisin boxes from SunMaid as a kid. Then, in the mid- to late eighties, I happened to love the “California Raisins”. They were a fictional rhythm and blues animated musical group (and advertising/merchandising characters) composed of anthropomorphized raisins channeling their inner Marvin Gaye. I thought it was so cool back then that I actually had a t-shirt that had the California raisins on it. And I wore it… a lot. Until…… my second daughter was about three years old. I had my California Raisins t-shirt on under a jumper. I was holding my daughter and talking to my parents at the time. My daughter pulled at the front of my jumper (ostensibly to look and see what was underneath/inside/whatever) and without skipping a beat, yelled, “Look! Raisins!” Yeah. My deflating moment as a mom and what my chest held. My mom started laughing and I’m pretty sure my dad spit out his beer. Yes. The charming days of childhood.
