Recently Benjamin Moore (you know, the paint people) announced their “Color Trends 2016 — Color of the Year” and had a launch party down in Varick Street, New York City to celebrate as part of a country-wide roll-out still going on (an event schedule is at the end of the blog).

This type of fabric is very absorbent, strong, durable and breathable. They have extra long fibers that feel elegantly soft to the touch and which soak up the water from your skin.
