In the language of flowers iris symbolizes eloquence
In the language of colour violet has versatile significance as you can see looking at this page.
'Violet is one of the oldest colors used by man. Traces of very dark violet, made by grinding the mineral manganese, mixed with water or animal fat and then brushed on the cave wall or applied with the fingers, are found in the prehistoric cave art in Pech Merle, in France, dating back about twenty-five thousand years. It has also been found in the cave of Altamira and Lascaux. It was sometimes used as an alternative to black charcoal. Sticks of manganese, used for drawing, have been found at sites occupied by Neanderthal man in France and Israel. From the grinding tools at various sites, it appears it may also have been used to color the body and to decorate animal skins.
More recently, the earliest dates on cave paintings have been pushed back farther than 35,000 years. Hand paintings on rock walls in Australia may be even older, dating back as far as 50,000 years.
Berries of the genus rubus, such as blackberries, were a common source of dyes in antiquity. The ancient Egyptians made a kind of violet dye by combining the juice of the mulberry with crushed green grapes' (wikipedia)
Violet also played an important part in the religious paintings of the Renaissance. Angels and the Virgin Mary were often portrayed wearing violet robes. The 15th-century Florentine painter Cennino Cennini advised artists: "If you want to make a lovely violet colour, take fine lacca, ultramarine blue (the same amount of the one as of the other)...
One of the most famous textile colours of the ancient world came from the sea snail of the Mediterrnean called Tyrian or Phoenician purple.
The Phoenicians also made an indigo dye, sometimes referred to as royal blue or hyacinth purple, which was made from a closely related species of marine snail.
Hyacinth, mulberries, blueberries, elderberries are some sources for colouring fabrics with natural botanical ingredients, far healthier for your skin and the environment.
In the gesture of dance, ballet and elegant modern choreography movement produces the emotion of violet, lavender, mauve, like the eloquence of words with iris.

Travel shapes one's soul with impressive contextual power. The metamorphic energy of Firenze generously gives creation inspiration and elemental direction. One of the strategic benefits of being at Costume Colloquium VI ~ Textiles in Fashion, Creativity in Context, is seeing where I am en pointe with my silk and colour work and where to focus elegant intelligence and style for my favoured clients.
Going behind the scenes with some of the best makers here a wonderful opportunity to admire and appreciate their intense regard for quality.
After learning, listening, and sharing, I feel a sense of humility and inventiveness knowing how much work must be done in order to play at the highest level.
Many ideas from this experience will blossom in the days ahead offering you the pure textural beauty of our silks.

'It is eternity now. I am in the midst of it. It is about me in the sunshine;
I am in it as the butterfly in the light-laden air. Nothing has to come; it is now.
Now is eternity; now is the immortal life.'
~ Richard Jefferies
