Color Solutions International (CSI) is a division of DyStar providing brands and retailers with a variety of sustainable color services.
Color is a crucial element of brand identity as well as consumer appeal. Management of color from design to retail is a complex and time-consuming task for most major apparel brands and retailers.
The CSI ColorWall™ system offers approximately 4,000 colors dyed on textiles and created with the high performance, RSL compliant and eco-clean profile of the DyStar dyes and chemicals. CSI also creates custom and tailor made colors.
CSI color inspiration helps designers visualize and plan the upcoming seasons. Most design decisions related to color will result in a chemical decision later in the chain. To support a fast design process, all colors appearing in the inspirations are ColorWall Colors.
The CSI ColorWall colors and CSI color inspirations are available as certified color standards to ensure an easy, fast and efficient color communication process between design, development and production.
