Color Concepts: The Story Behind Slate

Slate Bakeware

The internet’s new favorite color is here – Slate. See the inspo images behind our newest hue and dive deep into Slate’s history with Caraway.

The Origin Of Slate

While it may seem like we’re color experts here at Caraway, the truth is, colors take us a long time to perfect. That’s right, before Perracotta became Perracotta, it was Watermelon, Coral, Raspberry, and Rose. In order to settle on the perfect shade, we go through numerous different renditions. So, in full disclosure, Slate has been on our minds for quite some time now.

We wanted a shade that packed a punch, while still appearing neutral. Enter Slate, an incredibly versatile tone that can be paired with our core Cookware Set shades, or stand out on its own in the new Bakeware Collection. We knew the launch of Bakeware was the perfect time to launch Slate because it conveyed that this isn’t just any new color -- Slate is something special, and it needed a special launch to match.

Sitting somewhere in-between gray and blue, Slate provides the drama of our Navy shade, while maintaining the versatility of our Gray. We’ll be the first to say – Slate may just be the perfect hue.
