Colors Of Roman Clothing 

Saffron Yellow – The rich, colorfast, color of Yellow was produced by using an expensive dye used for Roman Clothing. 

The Yellow Saffron dye comes from the bright red stigmas of the Saffron Crocus (Crocus Sativus) which was found in areas of the Mediterranean, including Spain and Greece.

The Crocus Sativus stigmas are the female part of the flower, and Saffron dye was produced by drying these, and boiling with other plants then drying to produce the vibrant yellow colors.
