  • WOVNS swatch blankets are available for order under the Design References and Products tabs on wovns.com. The WOVNS swatch blankets correspond to the digital palette series available on our website, and show all of the physical weaves and colors that are available for use. Please note when designing your file you must load a digital palette to color your design. See details in the following question.
  • WOVNS does not currently offer sampling (less than 1 yard) of your own design.

What are “WOVNS color palettes”? How do I use them in my design? Can I use more than one palette in my design file? Can I use my own colors?

  • The WOVNS color palettes are a series of download-able digital color profiles, required for use in your design, prior to uploading your file to the WOVNS website. They can be found on the WOVNS website by starting here.
  • There are 20 different digital palettes per color series: Landscape, Eden, Spectrum, and Pastel are the names of the color series.
  • One uses a digital palette in his / her design by loading it into one’s design file and applying the colors to his / her artwork. For details on how to use ASE and ACT color palette files, visit our Tutorials section.
  • Only one digital color palette may be used in a design file at a time.
  • WOVNS swatch blankets are also available to aid in designing your fabric.These woven swatch blankets let you see and feel all the colors and weaves available in the WOVNS digital palettes offering. Each blanket set includes a complete color series: Landscape, Eden, Spectrum or Pastel.
  • * Note: The WOVNS swatch blankets should be used as a reference for designing for the face of the fabric in most cases. With the exceptions of Palettes 1 and 2 of each color series, the coloration on the back of the fabric will vary depending on the palette that you use in your design file. If you are referencing a WOVNS Swatch Blanket and would like to design for both the face and back of your fabric, only use Palettes 1 or 2 from a given series.
  • If you would like to use your own colors in a design, this would be considered completely custom and minimums would apply. For details, please visit our B2B page.
