The BCC (British Colour Council) colour standard is important as it was a very early attempt to standardize the thorny issue of describing colours, which are, by their very nature, subjective from person to person.1 Robemakers may use different shades of colour—for example, I have a ‘scarlet’ hood binding that is almost maroon and a scarlet hood lining that is a deep red. Palatinate Purple (of Durham) has seen various shades used, as has Beaton Pink in use at the University of East Anglia. [Excerpt].
