Color your World: Tan

Tan is a pale tone of brown. The name is derived from tannum (oak bark) used in the tanning of leather.

The first recorded use of tan as a color name in English was in the year 1590.

The orangeish tone of tan is called tan since 1958 in Crayola crayons and 1990 in Crayola markers.IMG_1810imagebadge
