Founder and CEO Mary Vigeant spent years working in apparel color development labs where she worked alongside fashion designers, developing seasonal color lines. She learned their process, the need for colors specifically created for textiles, shorter lead times and highly responsive customer service.
In 2005, Mary took that insight and expertise and founded Sophicolor, as Precision Textile Color. It started as a custom dye house for the development of apparel color standards for the women’s and men’s markets.
After developing countless colors, she foresaw a unique opportunity to use her massive archive to create exciting new color libraries for the textile-based fashion and home industries. She could offer more choice to designers with limited market options. This was a first in the color development industry, new libraries were developed from colors originally designed for apparel.
Being the first in the US to use advanced ChromaShare technology, they measured 6000+ colors, and culled them down to 4500 extraordinary colors that are now the Sophicolor Collections.
