British Colour Standard - An historical 1930’s colour matching system dating back to the times when dyed strips of ribbon and wool were used to specify uniforms to flags and products such as post-boxes to battleships - across the then British Empire. Modernised for a softer approach in our digital world.

Powder blue was in use in the 17th century, and came from the French poudre bleu, an old name for Smalt, which is powdered blue glass, the colour of which is due to cobalt.
