In response to customers’ need for more on trend colours in fabrics for workwear, Carrington Textiles has worked with expert colourists in France to create a range of brand-new trend colours for the company’s best-selling poly-cottons range, Teredo.

The development of the new colours includes vibrant shades like the new ‘Rose Violet’, ‘Vert Blue’ and ‘Mustard Yellow’. The colourful tones have already made an impact in the fashion industry and are ideal for making a statement in workwear, Carrington reports.

For an earthy more natural look, Carrington Textiles is adding ‘Marron Rose Brique’, ‘Orange Cuivre’, ‘Pink’, ‘Ecru’ and ‘Sand’, colours that offer a more neutral appearance and are already popular in the hospitality sector. The new Teredo trend colours are all stock supported in 100 metre rolls and expand the range of tones and prints available for the fabric to over 60 choices.

Isabelle Dias, Market Manager at Carrington for France comments: “Working closely with French customers, we were able to determine the colours they were expecting this season, so I’m excited to launch these great new shades on one of our most popular fabrics.”

At a weight of 195gsm, Teredo is one of Carrington Textiles’ top selling products with a 65% polyester and 35% cotton composition and is a popular option for workwear in sectors including hospitality and retail.
