Portable Color Atlas system from Archroma
Archroma, a global leader in colour and specialty chemicals who pioneered custom colour engineering in textile and fashion, launched a portable version of its popular Color Atlas system at the ‘Sourcing at MAGIC’ fashion industry show in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
The new compact Color Atlas includes the same 4,320 colour swatches as the original, but is condensed from six to two slim volumes for increased mobility. Selling for a fraction of the price, the compact edition is also a first entry option for smaller brands and up-and-coming designers willing to access a best-in-class colour management tool. It’s also a great additional option for companies who might like to expand Archroma’s tools within their organisation.
The compact edition includes 2.5 x 2.5 cm (1-inch x 1-inch) single-layer colour swatches, while lighter colours are represented with two-layer swatches in order to more faithfully present a hue’s true appearance. This edition’s swatches are securely attached to the page, as opposed to the full edition’s removable swatch interface.
