Quick response for product design, production, and product quality assessment has become a norm for textile and clothing industry. With this demand of quick response, the communication via electronic links and Internet, the adopt of e-commerce is wide spread. Many companies use computer controlled CRT display devices for product design, evaluation from fibre, yarn and fabric texture to complex 3D visualization of garments. The screen colours are also used for colour quality control and communication. The digital archiving is also become popular, as digital samples can save storage space, reduce retrieval time, and eliminate the problem of fading and contamination.||The demand of colour fidelity in multimedia, press, broadcasting, and cinema is also increasing. The accuracy for colour reproduction is even more important for textile and clothing industry with typical colour tolerance for accepting and rejecting a colour matching of 1.0 CMC(2:1) unit. Preserving colour fidelity throughout design and production processes involves the use of a total colour management system with various media. The technology of calibration and characterisation of colour input and output devices, as well as colour space transformation between devices, is required. This paper reports the development of the framework for total colour management and the applications in the workflow of textile and clothing industries. The framework not only supports the accurate colorimetric data transformation between different input and output devices, but also utilising the recent development in gamma mapping, colour appearance model and image processing. Moreover, as visualization and simulation of textile samples on CRT monitor is an essential part in the system, the accuracy of a widely used CRT characterisation model - GOG model were also studied.
