FABA – Best Icon Theme for Linux Desktop’s

Faba is part of MOKA Project. It was designed with simplicity and compliance to icon standards in mind. Its purpose is to serve as a base icon theme to other themes (such as Moka). As such, Faba is only comprised of minimal set of icons for the system, select apps, folders, mime types, toolbars, etc. To extend Faba, there is also a monochrome icon theme for paneled desktop environments.
