|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 set our moods in between.

Nature is filled with greys, not only backdrops, but powerful qualities unto themselves.
Norlha works with three natural shades of the yak, and the most versatile of these is the beautiful warm grey of the grey yak, about 10% of animals in any given herd.
