We can be proud as needlepoints, we are on the cutting edge. We have long known the importance of colorful metallics and semi-metallic colors in our threads. From the Kreinik threads in every color, to Rainbow Gallery’s many threads that mix metallics with other fibers, we expertly use these threads in our projects.
Yesterday confirmation of the importance of metallic finishes came from Pantone, the color experts for industry and business. They said that “our new Pantone Metallic Shimmers addresses the increasing importance of metallic finish in fashion and product design.” On the same page they also talk about the growing importance of metallic and pearlescent finishes.
There are 200 colors in the collection and they include colorful and traditional metallics. To see them all you have to buy their color pack. They have put a selection of them on their website (scroll down).
