why choose Scotcloth?

The Scotcloth archives includes over 1000 preset designs for all categories of clothing and furnishing fabrics.  The library also contains a wide range of fabric constructions which can be used, with the simple click of a button to alter the appearance of an image.

Our colloboration with Pantone© gives the user the possibility of colour change, with colour references which allow for accurate translations of requirements from source to chosen manufacturer.

Scotcloth recommends that physical Pantone© colour chips are used to check for accuracy as each computer screen and printer can show colour variance.

Scotcloth is a PC based software package. It can be used on an Apple Mac with Windows 10 and Parallels software to create a virtual PC.
