Charity Registration No. 1071659


We are The Rainbow Hunters: One Mother, Two boys. A six month trip around the world, travelling to seven countries to find the seven colours of the rainbow.

In India we will travel to the saffron fields that lie in the mountains of Kashmir, join the harvesters in a sea of blue crocuses which hide the yellow stamen that produces the most expensive spice in the world.

In China we will trek to temples to find the most prized china that the emperors were buried with, prized because it was glazed with celedon green.

In New Zealand we will seek out the lavender fields and the purple sea snails that weep the colour violet.

In Australia we will venture deep into the interior to find Aboriginal settlements and the ancient cave paintings of red ochre that date back to the earliest of mankind's paintings.

In Chile we will travel to the Lapis Lazuli mines that lie high in the Andes at 4000m, accessible for only three months of the year, we will find the rock that can be made into the blue pigment that has painted a thousand skies.

In South Carolina we will journey to island of Ossabaw Island in search of the Indigo fields, to the plantations that carry the legacy of the American slave trade.

In Italy we will find the secret recipe that is cremona, the orange varnish that has coloured the violins of Stradavi.
