Understand “Khaki” through Etymology
The Etymology of “Khaki”
Khaki means “dusty”. It derives from the Persian word “Khak”, which means dust. The British soldiers in India were the ones to carry the word to English. They used to wear ‘khaki’ uniforms. Over the years, the range of the Khaki colour palette has broadened to include many more shades than what the British soldiers used to wear in India.
Khaki when used in the plural form, refers to a kind of garment, that we’re all so familiar with. See how words evolve? 🙂
