‘Falun red’ (in Swedish ‘Falu rödfärg’) is the name of a Swedish, deep red paint well known for its use on wooden cottages and barns. The paint originated from the copper mine at Falun in Dalarna, Sweden. The earliest evidence of its use dates from the 16th century. It remains popular even today due to its effectiveness in preserving wood.

    A DAMSEL WHO LOVED SHADES OF RED

    A damsel who loved shades of red
    Discovered she’d been sore misled;
    She had no more rose,
    Nor blush for her nose—
    If she finds the thief, the guy’s dead!
