colourways

Once fabric designs are chosen, suitable colourways will be selected, and if necessary, sampled.  Colourways may be balanced or not.  Balanced colourways are when the colours change but the relationships of the colours within the design stay the same.  Unbalanced colourways are when there are no similar colour relationships between colourways.  (For example, a three-colour print design has a dark blue ground, large flowers in mid-blue and small flowers in light blue.  A balanced colourways of this would be one that had a dark green ground, large flowers in mid-green and small flowers in light green.  An unbalanced colourways would be one that had a bright yellow ground, pink large flowers and dark blue small flowers.)
