Abstract : The traditional method for determining the acceptability of fabrics relative to a given standard color is visual shade evaluation. However, visual color assessment is subjective and time-consuming. In contrast, instrumental color measurement, used in conjunction with established standards for quantifying color differences, provides and objective and consistent methodology for judging acceptibility of colored goods.
