Beige is a very pale yellowish-cream color.
The term originates from beige cloth, a cotton fabric left in its natural color. It has since come to be used for a range of light tints chosen for their neutral or cool appearance.
Beginning in the 1920s, the meaning of the term beige expanded to the point where it is now also used for a wide range of pale brown shades.
The first recorded use of beige as a color name in English was in 1887.
