What’s in a Name?

Recently, I’ve heard there is some confusion about the pronunciation of my store’s name. Understandable. I’m all about an obscure word to really draw people in. Marketing, eh? But no fear! I’m hear to assist!


The name Ochre & Bone comes from my love of color words and bones. My favorite color word is quinacridone (look it up…it’s a gorgeous color). My second favorite is alizarine (but I already used that name for a personal blog). So…I decided to use a color that is earthy, grounded, and is named with a two syllable word. Ochre is pronounced oh-ker (not like the strange southern mallow, okra).
