Colour Communication Terminology between two fabric swatches.

Standardized colour communication is an essential part of effective colour control when describing the visual differences between two fabric swatches.

The universally accepted system of colour assessment and communication is based on the colour terminology of the Committee International de l’Eclairage (C.I.E). This is the International Commission on Illumination.

The C.I.E.

-L* (Lightness),

-C* (Chroma) and

-H* (Hue) system is used to describe colour differences.

Lightness (L*) represents the degree of lightness or darkness.

Chroma (C*) represents the degree of Brightness or Saturation.

Hue (H*) represents the shade or hue of a colour.
