Metameric Samples

This simple yet effective tool is used globally by the textile industry to demonstrate ‘illuminant metamerism’.  This is when two colours appear the same when viewed in one set of lighting conditions but, when viewed under different light, they appear to be quite different.   Containing four cotton fabric samples, each one coloured with carefully selected dyes, this tool can be used to demonstrate illuminant metamerism using daylight alone.  However, it can also be used with a light cabinet, under fluorescent lights or tungsten lighting.
