The name cyanos is derived from the ancient greek word κυανός, meaning “dark blue”, formerly known as “cyan blue”. The greek poet Homer (author of Iliad and Odyssey, who lived during the 8th century B.C.) was the first to use the word “cyanos”. Ιn ancient times, “cyanos” was used to describe the blue reflections created when the sun light illuminated on dark-pencil grey metal alloy. We also find it in word ku-wa-no, in a Linear-B sign in Pylos, Greece. It is the bluish-grayish color, also found in nature, in birds feathers of flowers.
Kyanos collection is available only for wholesale.
