Our colour consistency is one of the highest in the custom sportswear industry.

We understand the importance of colour consistency to keep your sportswear colour the same with every order now and in the future. You shouldn’t put up with colour variations year on year and this is why we have developed internal QC standards to maintain colour variation to levels below Delta-E of 0.8%.

Our fabrics also have superior colour fast rating which minimises colour fading and bleeding. This means you have the freedom to select any colour combination to create your designs with certainty that if you follow care instructions there will not be bleeding stains after laundering.
