Taipei, Taiwan (July 22, 2019) – CHROMUCH, an innovator in sustainable, color-rich and developer-friendly synthetic fibers, has curated 50 colors for 2021 with world-renowned trend agency and color specialist PROMOSTYL. The 2021 Color Guide includes five trend-right color collections for applications in apparel and equipment, including sportwear, athleisure, tents and sleeping bags.
For 2021, CHROMUCH has partnered with PROMOSTYL to develop 50 signature hues in five exclusive color collections including sophisticated and urban Push & Go tones, and the calm, but intense colors in Drift Away. “With over 1000 colors in the total palette, designers can now take a modern approach to design with where sustainable sourcing and premium color come first,” says Mike Shih, a spokesperson for CHROMUCH. “By partnering with PROMOSTYL, we are taking the risks out of the coloring process for our customers by ensuring that the right colors hit the market at the right time.”
CHROMUCH stands out from other fiber manufacturers with its innovations in solution dyed synthetic fiber. CHROMUCH fibers are rich in color, fade-resistant, earth-friendly and are made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and use absolutely no water in the dyeing process.
“In the world of sportswear, manufacturing times are very long because it is more technical and it is important to anticipate trends well in advance – usually around 2 years,” notes Marion Hugoo, a color specialist from PROMOSTYL. “Tastes evolve, so you have to be as close as possible to the consumer’s aspirations as possible. As sportwear is increasingly inspired by fashion, the CHROMUCH collection has refined shades which are more urban and subtle.”
Hugoo continues, “One of the key strengths of CHROMUCH is the very dense and deep colors available and also the subtle fluorescent colors, especially the very elegant bleached fluorescent yellows. We love their pale yellow, orange and green fluros!”
Additionally, CHROMUCH is changing the game with the introduction of CHROMUCH Now, a developer-friendly program of competitively priced, trend-right colors that are in stock for better lead times and low MOQ. This program allows developers to select PROMOSTYL-curated colors up front, with low order minimums while eliminating the need to color-match. With CHROMUCH Now, product developers can finally take advantage of the benefits of solution dyed fibers with a program that removes the barriers to entry such as lead time and unattainable minimum order quantities.
By reinventing color at the fiber level, CHROMUCH advances a new standard in sustainable color design and takes the guesswork and compromise out of the equation. CHROMUCH solution dyed polyester fibers are made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and use absolutely no water in the dyeing process. The newly-developed synthetic fiber is of premium quality, rich in color, fade-resistant and earth-friendly, making CHROMUCH the best choice in developer-friendly performance textiles.
