It was announced on Thursday that the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year is Marsala, 18-1438. Marsala is a naturally robust and earthy red wine color and I suspect it’s only a matter of time before you start seeing Marsala (0r a something similar) in the cloth diaper industry. Here’s a look some of the other top Pantone colors that are likely to appear on a cloth diaper for 2015.
2015 Cloth Diaper Color Trends According to Pantone
Some of the color trends have already started to make their way into some popular cloth diapers recently. While the colors may not be exact matches, remember that many manufactures will divert from the Pantone scale just slightly so they don’t come out with the same exact color as their competitors.
Strawberry Ice 16-1721
Strawberry Ice looks really similar to the new Sloomb Strawberry Longies.
Classic Blue 19-4052
Classic Blue and bumGenius Stellar (coming soon) have some striking similarities.
Glacier Gray 14-4102
Thirsties new Ocean Collection’s Fin and Glacier Gray are stunning!
Perhaps one of my favorite combinations; Aquamarine & Glacier Gray compared the Thirsties New Ocean Collection “Ocean Life” print.
Tangerine 15-1247, Aquamarine 14-4313, Woodbine 18-0538
The colors in the new Rumparooz Jeweled are a bit more vivid but clearly similar to Aquamarine, Tangerine, and Woodbine.
Scuba Blue 16-4725, Glacier Gray 14-4102
I love how Rumparooz integrates the Glacier Gray in the background of the new Clyde print and how the owl is a paler version of Scuba Blue.
Which color would you like to see next? What diaper would you like to see it on? Perhaps you’ll see more than one paired for a new print. Leave your comments below and tell me what you think!
Disclosure: I don’t have any insider information that would lead me to know if any of these colors will be seen on cloth diapers for 2015. I do know that many cloth diaper manufactures follow color trends closely and has historically released limited edition or new color lines from the top Pantone color collections.
