Polyester Swatch Card

Set a new standard for saturated color


Pantone’s Polyester Swatch Card is the latest standard on non-organic, manmade fabric for designers, colorists, and product developers in apparel, textiles, and soft home. Individual swatch cards are made from double-layered, 100% non-recycled polyester, loose-format fabric.

Made to exacting color specifications, each swatch card includes a barcode that can be used to order the associated spectral data (sold separately) for assured color accuracy in production. These 203 colors were curated to represent the most sought-after shades to complement our existing Fashion, Home + Interiors cotton and nylon standards.

Minimum order of 5 swatches in any color or material (Cotton, Polyester or Nylon Brights)
