    Lightbulb New Color Families

    Tom Bihn seems to be favoring warm, "autumn" colors lately when designing outer bag fabrics: Burnt Orange, Verde, Orange, Coyote. Are you open also to working with what is known in the world of color as a "summer" palette? Ex: soft teal blue, muted purple, soft burgundy, india ink (navy with purple undertones), dark rose. These colors can also be described as soft, subtle, cool, muted. Former and current TB examples include Forest (and I believe) aubergine. Thanks.

    I believe French Blue would be too bright with respect to what is being described. These are primarily darker colours with hints of brighter tones in them, giving that rich, "royal" luxurious feel - it's very suitable to ballistic nylon's natural sheen.

    Yes, I did see the French Blue. Nice color, but not what I'm describing. Jaraxte is correct - it's too bright. I have color fans for the color families I'm describing. I'll take some pics of them when it's light out and post them.

    Well there are so many different systems with acordingly different color fans out there.
    When I discoverd Tom Bihn I was so glad that they had this mayn colors and that they had cool ones (that I like) and warm ones for thouse who prefear that and not only the black you see everyehere. Frensh Blue is not as muted as Storm was but it aint Spring bright either.

    But of cause I am all for more colors and would love them to be on the cool side too ;-)

    Yes, muted cool! I missed the Storm era, but have love that over French blue which seems brighter and less able to blend in with my other blues and cools.
