How to color combine our cloth

A color wheel is a circle graphic that shows how different colors relate to each other. In his 1704 book Opticks, Sir Isaac Newton created the first color wheel. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet are the seven hues on Newton’s asymmetrical color wheel. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe created a symmetrical color wheel with only six hues (excluding indigo) in 1810, which is very similar to the one we use today. Color wheels are used by artists and fashion designers to develop color schemes that achieve a desired creative impression. Three primary colors anchor the color wheel, forming a triadic color scheme. These primary colors are red, yellow, and blue in the classic RYB color paradigm. Green, orange, and purple are secondary colors that can be created by mixing the main colors. Magenta (red-purple), vermillion (red-orange), amber (yellow-orange), chartreuse (yellow-green), teal (blue-green), and violet are examples of tertiary colors created by combining primary and secondary colors (blue-purple).
