Top 8 Colour Trends Exporters Must Know in 2022

In the words of Wassily Kandinsky, "Color has the power to directly influence the soul". Due to the pandemic, our lifestyles have had drastic changes. The pattern of the biggest color trend in 2022 for home textile, home decor, even apparel has seen major changes.

Here is a list of the biggest color trends that we’ll be seeing in 2022-23:

1. Very Peri: Pantone Colour of 2022

Pantone's color of the year always creates a huge buzz every year. Their sensible approach to choosing more humane and scientific colours deserve all the love and respect. This year, they have driven extra miles and introduced a unique color- Very Peri. It is from the family of the blue color palette, but the violet-red undertone has made it an out-of-the-world beauty. It represents transition. From fashion to home decor, this color is going to be seen everywhere.

2. Eggshell White: Comfort and airy

People have gone through a lot in the last two years, both physically and mentally. They are now craving calm and comfort. And there is nothing better than the light and airy colours to comfort them. White is not for everyone. So people are picking up colours beyond pastel and white—more of minty shades, eggshell finishes, and watercolor tones.

Buyers are going to be looking for more water-color & muted white-inspired hand-printed arts, handcrafted pillow covers, hand-tufted rugs, and blankets. These shades will be seen in garments and apparel too.

4. Warm Neutrals: Go full old-school

Pandemic has taught us so many things. Among them is the "necessity of basics" which is a major reminder that many of us will keep pinned to our hearts. Buyers are looking for old-school warm neutral colors, as it symbolizes peace of mind and minimalism at the same time.

The main idea is investing in long-lasting products and colors that will pay off and be trendy at the same time. From bed covers, sofa covers, textiles to clothes, expect to see more white and warm tones this year. Handcrafted white ceramic pieces will be creating buzz too.

4. Pretty Pastel

For the last few years, pastel colours have been winning the colour game. Pastel is going to stick in the competition in 2022 as well. Adidas, Nike and other high brands are also launching new editions in pastel colors. Pastels are soft but also adventurous, which is the main reason for their popularity. We are more likely to see gentle pink, lavender & yellow colour in clothing and shoes. These colors will gain popularity with blankets, cushion covers, and sofa covers in home textile.

5. Gotta Go Green

In these past two years, people have grown more fond of being close to nature. Green stays at the sweet spot between bold and vibrant colours- the sole reason people are incorporating it into their spaces more. Green also adds a hint of refreshment. People are trying to add this dose of freshness to their lifestyle. From home textile to apparel, green is ruling the trend worldwide. Forest green and Muted Green- these two shades are already topping lists of ‘2022 color of the year'.
