Achieving Accurate Colors in Woven Fabrics with Winnitex

Winnitex specializes in achieving accurate and consistent colors in our woven fabrics, ensuring they meet our clients' specifications and brand requirements. Our systematic approach to color perfection involves meticulous steps and revisions to ensure the highest quality.

The Science of Color in Textiles

Achieving color harmony involves a detailed process, combining scientific accuracy with extensive experience. Winnitex follows these key steps to ensure fabric colors are precise and consistent:

  1. Lab Dip Testing: Before bulk dyeing, we conduct lab dips on semi-bleached fabric samples with the intended color recipe. This critical step ensures the fabric reacts correctly to the dye, achieving the desired color.
  2. Lighting Conditions Assessment: Recognizing that color perception varies under different lighting, we evaluate fabric colors under multiple lighting sources, such as D65 (daylight), CWF (Cool White Fluorescent), and INCA (Incandescent), among others based on customer needs. This ensures color consistency across various lighting conditions.
  3. Delta E Measurement: We use Delta E to measure the difference between the intended standard color and the sample color. This objective assessment allows for precise color matching and batch consistency.
  4. Analyzing Color Shifts: To address metamerism, where colors look different under various lights, we chart color differences in specific contexts (yellow, blue, gray, red). This analysis guides our adjustments to minimize color discrepancies.

Adapting and Refining

Should discrepancies arise at any stage, including lab dip tests or light condition assessments, we return to the lab to adjust the color recipe before attempting again. This iterative process ensures the final product precisely matches the intended color under all conditions.

Commitment to Excellence

With years of expertise, Winnitex excels in color accuracy, understanding the nuances of color perception, and applying technical skills to maintain color integrity. Our commitment extends beyond technical accuracy, incorporating client visions into every fabric, ensuring each piece resonates with the desired brand identity.
