Coats Group plc, the world’s leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business, is launching CoatsMatch, a revolutionary colour solution for the sewn products industry. The technology reduces lead times and high costs involved in colour design and approval processes.

Coats Group plc’s CoatsMatch has a highly portable and user-friendly colour-reading device and in addition it connects via Bluetooth to two mobile Apps – Coats Colour Select and Coats Colour Compare. The company said in a release that once a colour has been captured using the CoatsMatch device, it is instantly loaded onto the Coats Colour Select App. This digital representation of the colour can then be accurately compared to the Coats Colour Atlas with its comprehensive set of more than 7,500 colour standards or a customer’s own colour library. The selected colour reference can also be transferred within seconds to other users along the supply chain like fabric manufacturers, saving significant time and increasing accuracy.

Coats Group plc’s Coats Colour Compare App allows colour supply chain stakeholders to share measured colour standards; set tolerances within which a colour is acceptable; and compare physical fabric with their chosen colour for accuracy. The App can also highlight if the designer has used the colour before in previous collections (preventing duplicate development) and can also identify the closest colour match for the thread, zips and trims to accompany the fabric. Using Coats Colour Compare, the manufacturer can check the colour accuracy before sending it for approval. This would reduce the number of iterations and hence deliver significant time and cost savings.

Rajiv Sharma, CEO, Industrial, Coats Group plc said, “CoatsMatch is another clear example of Coats using its global expertise to deliver customer led innovation. Every year a substantial amount of money is wasted through inefficiencies in the colour supply chain within the sewn products industry. CoatsMatch helps reduce downtime and waste, resulting in lower costs for customers.”
