Pantone Announces The 2016 Colours of the year!

Pantone Colour of the Year 2016

Lee_Eisemann Pantone Color of the Year 2016 ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY

PANTONE 13-1520 & PANTONE 15-3919

A softer take on color for 2016: For the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity are chosen as the PANTONE Color of the Year

As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association.

In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.

A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.

Dear Alendel Customers 

As we continue to navigate COVID-19 together, I want to be sure we continue to be transparent in our communication as the situation is changing daily.  

In the past 24 hours, we have received many calls from customers that either currently manufacture or started to manufacture for essential businesses asking if we can make exceptions to ship. 

While we remain committed to customer and employee safety; we have been in contact with authorities to assist in assessing our situation based off facts and science; defined principally by the expert guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and local Government. 

As a partner in this fight together, Alendel Fabrics will re-open its warehouse and shipping departments as of tomorrow, Thursday, March 26th with social distancing best practices already in place while other departments continue to work from home. 

For safety, the Alendel showroom and local pickups will remain unavailable until further notice.  

As a reminder, The Alendel Customer Portal (alendel.com) is a great tool that enables you to place orders, check stock & pricing 24/7. Memo samples can be ordered directly from our website at alendel.com. Should you require additional assistance our customer service team is also available by phone and will continue to answer questions and accept orders over the phone, by fax, and by email. 

Through this challenging time, our top priority remains the health and safety of our employees, customers, and communities. 

We are proud of our team of employees and partners, who have continued to remain focused, committed and resilient.
