The main issue we faced in developing the colour chooser, was that suppliers across the industry use a vast range of colour naming conventions.
If we simply put all those colours into a list we would have thousands of permutations. As an example here are all the colours that make up the "Blue" filter: Blue, Blue (1), Blue Silver, Blue Translucent Purple, Blue White, Frosted Blue, Medium Blue, Mid Blue, Royal, Royal Blue, Royal Blue With White, Square Blue, Trans Blue, Translucent Blue, White With Blue
The colour chooser works by grouping the supplier colours into 20 set groups of colours. It is possible to change these if you wish. As you can see it's no small list, and we build on this all the time as we add new products to websites.We have written some guidelines on How to Setup Product Colours that may be useful to some readers.
