Colors, Inspirations and Design

With our CSI Color Inspirations we help the designer to visualize and plan the upcoming season. To give the designer quick access to a large variety of colors we provide one of the biggest selections of Ready Made Colors. If there is a design color so unique that it is not available as a Ready Made Color, we can tailor this color in our custom color matching process.  Our repertoire of design tools is the right equipment for a designer’s internal color communication.

Color Communication

Certified Standards build the bridge between designer and manufacturer and help the color manager to coordinate the translation from the design to the finished fashion product. The CSI Color Communication program saves our customers time and enables them to focus on the design and development of their colors. Our dedicated staff manages color palettes, inventory and the distribution of color standards. Program accounts can track and analyze the distribution of their palettes with our easy web-based reporting functions..

Technical Expertise

In addition, our global network of technical experts provide support to vendors and mills. DyStar Textile Services include auditing, problem-solving, productivity improvement and the introduction of innovative new technologies.


We are constantly exploring new ways to bring the world’s most reliable color management services to our customers.
