The KalkKind materials are made from around 40 different pigment colors KalkKind-Color collection colored.
The focus of the KalkKind-Color collection is on the color pigments of the “colored earths”. Colorful earths are mineral rocks that come in a wide variety of colors.
Yellow and red ocher and umber from Italy are used. We use red ocher and various umber from French sources. The Tyrolean green earth comes from Tyrol.

Of course, Westerwald ocher, Odenwald red ocher, Rhenish red and green earth and Palatinate ocher are part of the range.
What makes the use of these color pigments so attractive today is the fact that they visually bring buildings, rooms and objects back into harmony with the natural world. These colors have a powerful effect on humans. For example, yellow ocher in the peat lime feel-good plaster achieves excellent cream and soft yellow tones, which the eye perceives as pleasant and which the enormous abundance of yellow synthetic colors cannot withstand.

Our optical relation to nature is established by the retina and the visual cortex, which have adapted to the special light frequencies of our natural environment in the course of evolution.
