Ebony is a color derived from the wood of the reknowned tropical trees of the same name typically found in the South Asian region. However, the material’s popularity as piano keys and chess pieces, along with its unsustainable harvesting practices, have put many ebony wood trees at risk.

The color Ebony is less heavy than jet black, however, it maintains a similarly strong sense of sophistication, weight and elegance. Blend Ebony with white or other neutrals for a classic and timeless color palette, or use Ebony as an addition to vivid colors to tone down their brightnness.
