The Colors of the Pamlico is a collection to celebrate all the wonderful colors that surround the Pamlico sound and river.
The Pamlico is surrounded by every color imaginable. Not only do many beautiful colors flow through all the natural wonders we have to view in the region. Colors played a unique role in the early culture of the 16th century with the English settlers as they started a new colony here.
The colors in the clothing that were worn reflected the social standing of those in England who came to settle on Roanoke Island. Back then there were what was called Sumptuary laws. These laws attempted to dictate the color, fabrics, and decoration of clothing suitable for social rank and income. The wealthy exhibited more bright colors and the lower class where seen in more neutral colors.
You will find every color of the rainbow flowing through and around our sounds, river, and sea.
