“Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.”
Leatrice Eiseman – executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute
Every year Pantone releases the Colour of the Year: 2018 is the year of the deep and intense Ultra Violet.
You might think that this specific colour must be hard to combine, while there is actually a lot out there that matches perfectly with this specific colour and makes it fun to use.
In this blogpost: The Rhinetex Top 10 Fabric Collections That Match Perfectly with the Ultra Violet; Colour of the Year 2018.
10. Night Hike by Heather Givans for Windham Fabrics
Ultra Violet already has a dramatic feeling itself, which matches good with the deep night feeling of this collection. It’s not just the deep colours of this fabric collection that match, also the softer pastels are in here to bring harmony and space. Heather Givans’ collection echoes the beauty of the night. It makes us want the day to be over as soon as possible, so we can explore the beauty of the night ourselves. This fabric collection comes out in May 2018. AND: Aurifil also made a designer collection box on this line.
9. Big Sky by Annie Brady for Moda
The most notable thing about this collection is how surprisingly well both the yellow and minty hues are matching with the bold Ultra Violet. This unusual colour combination brings character. Tiny details in this collection as leaves, flowers and animals work well with the solid Ultra Violet. Is already been sent to stores. Please contact us if you are interested.
8. Judith’s Fancy by Jennifer Paganelli for FreeSpirit
You may know that Judith’s Fancy is inspired by St. Croix; an island in the Caribbean Sea, where designer Jennifer Paganelli lived for a couple of years. When she was designing this bright collection, she felt it as if the island St. Croix was inside her paintbrush. All of her cherished memories came back while she was painting. The painted texture is what gives this collection the artistic, playful expression. Is already been sent to stores. Please contact us if you are interested.
7. Butterfly Dance by Sally Kelly for Windham
When combining Ultra Violet with Butterfly Dance by Sally Kelly, Ultra Violet is making the designs a statement. The dynamic and wild collection is giving the ultimate summer feeling. Comes in May 2018.
6. Peacemeal by Tina Givens for FreeSpirit
Combining the artworks of Tina Givens’ Peacemeal Collection with Ultra Violet is a perfect example of experimentation with colour combinations.

5. Lilac Ridge by Jan Patek for Moda

The green and creamy hues are complementing purple beautifully, for a wealthy touch. Is already been sent to stores. Please contact us if you are interested.
4. Night Music by Amy Butler for FreeSpirit
Mythological and magical, that is how we’d describe Night Music by Amy Butler.

Please contact us if you are interested.
3. Shibori II by Debbie Maddy for Moda
Shibori II is celebrating the unique Shades of Blue, but in combination with Ultra Violet, it complements each other perfectly. Both intense and deep, unique and artistic. The Japanese dyeing technique Shibori breaks this solid and strong Ultra Violet in a way we haven’t seen before. Is already been sent to stores. Please contact us if you are interested.
2. Romance by Whistler Studios for Windham
The combination of Romance by Whistler Studios and Ultra Violet is the swift away from the softer pastels into the bolder hues. The collection itself is in a perfect harmony, and we’re crushing on that. While staring at these fabrics, the yellow and green details are popping up and leaving again. Dreamy and stylish touches go well with jewel tones as Ultra Violet.
