The Pantone Polyester Swatch Set offers 203 unique synthetic colors for designers and colorists working in apparel, textiles, and soft home in one convenient storage case. Our new 2”x 2” mini swatches are secured, double layered, and on unbacked 100% polyester fabric. They are easy to review, select, and replace in three removable display trays. These forecast-driven swatches come arranged by color family and are ideal tools when creating your own color stories and palettes.
As new markets highlighting engineered materials continue to emerge, and new inorganic materials enter the market, there is an increasing desire for more saturated colors; colors beyond those formulated for natural fibers; colors whose appearance displays greater hue intensity. Our new Pantone Polyester Standards address this need and demand for a deeper level of coloration.
Developed with dyes specifically for polyester, these 203 colors are of a distinct difference from our cotton formats; displaying a color depth best achieved with a non-cotton-based textile dyed system. There are many colors in our new polyester collection that could not reproduce on cotton with the same degree of clarity or intensity.
Creating a special collection of colors using dyes specifically for polyester removes the guesswork, allowing you to reproduce these colors quickly and effortlessly in polyester, as well as other synthetic fibers.
All 203 colors are available in a set of 2" x 2" mini swatches.
