True Colours

True Colours reveals what no one can see with

the naked eye – using plain markers and water.

Colour and Material research chromatography

Colour consists of a multitude of shades. This also goes for black. By applying marker ink on water-drenched textiles, individual tints separate. This cracks the ink’s code and dissolves the colour into ever changing patterns – forming the basis for an exclusive collection of fabrics.


True Colours is the outcome of a study on the composition of colours by breaking them down, also known as chromatography.
