Total Colour Management in Textiles

Managing colour from the design stage to the finished product can be a difficult activity as colour perception is subjective and can therefore be inconsistent. Total colour management in textiles covers all aspects of managing colour from the design stage to the final product, ensuring that the designer’s vision is fulfilled in the finished colour. There have been many new developments in the area of colour measurement and colour perception which are discussed. These include discussion of the sensory effect of colour for design and use in product development, and digital colour simulation.

Graphic designers, merchandisers, product development specialists and anyone who uses color in their work; Academics and students researching textiles, fashion, design, fine arts, or any color related subjects.
