Colors and the Effect of Colors in Fabrics
|Colors are everywhere, and they help define how we feel and behave. A simple change of color can significantly affect one's demeanor, mood and disposition; such is the power of colors in our lives.|
The human eye can differentiate around 10 million distinct color shades, from the deepest black to the most vivid reds, yellows and blues. The choice of fabric color for a sewing project can impact both the feeling you have when you wear it and how others perceive you when you have it on. A beige dress may not garner much attention, but the same dress in blazing red fabric may be a showstopper. That red silk fabric tie that suggests power and poise may look pompous in violet or ineffectual in brown. The colors we wear, whether we intend it or not, make a statement about us and therefore need to be well thought out and coordinated.
We have compiled information about a few of the more basic colors, including how they affect people's moods and perceptions.
