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.

Color Wheel
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.
