The Pantone Cotton Swatch Cards (SWCDX) are available in 2,626 colours (TCX) – including Very Peri 17-3938 the 2022 Pantone Color of the Year and Viva Magenta 18-1750 the 2023 Pantone Color of the Year.

This is the colour standard for all designers, product developers, buyers and colourists who work in the textiles and apparels industry. Use for all textile materials, suitable for apparel, soft home and interiors products. These cotton swatch colours can be reproduced on any fibre, even wool and man made fibres, whereas many polyester colour standards cannot be reproduced on cotton as the dyes available for cotton are not as saturated (bright).

Use Pantone Cotton Swatch Cards for precise visual colour evaluation, spectrophotometric colour measurement (QTX data available separately), and specifying colour to your production partners.

The colours are the same as those in all of the Pantone Cotton TCX books or Pantone TPG books but are larger swatches in woven cotton ideal for mood boards, palette development and client approvals.

As this product is an official colour standard made to a strict tolerance to the original Master Standard both visually and to the CXF & QTX spectral data they are suitable for use in Quality control of the final product as well as for colour development throughout the supply chain.

Fluorescent colours are not available in Cotton. For large swatches of Fluorescent colours select from those available in Nylon Swatch Cards (TN) or Polyester Swatch Cards (TSX).

We aim to despatch Pantone Swatch Cards the same day if ordered before 12.30 pm. Orders placed after this time will be sent the following day. If you order cut swatches, they may be despatched in this time frame but please allow up to 5 days for cutting especially if your order is large. Cut swatches are non-returnable.
