Q: My customer complained that the back of her
jacket is discolored when she goes outside. What causes this color variance?
A: In some cases,
facing materials may also be used on the back panels. This can contribute to a
lighter, brighter or darker appearance than the sleeves and sides of the
garment. The facing may be used on the entire back panel, or may only be present on the upper portions or shoulder areas. The color variance is usually not
noticeable in normal light, but may become apparent in bright sunlight.
or thickness of the fabric and the dyes used will determine the degree of color
shading that occurs.
