This is the sublimation pattern on the fabric of a dark red tie

Let's get right to my ignorance, what's a sublimation pattern?

Sublimated patterns are fairly common in fabrics used for sports. They often are achieved by using threads that are very close or slightly darker than the primary color and the designs woven into the fabric only become visible when you are very close to them. In this case, the tie is a deep red, and the sublimation pattern almost black. From a distance, the tie looks all red, but up close you can see the very subtle pattern.

Would a pattern created by a change in the weave pattern also be a sublimation pattern?

I wonder if there's scope for more dictionary browsing here! When I first saw the title I thought (as a chemist) it must be a pattern-printing process involvng a solid dye, heated to evaporate it on to a masked fabric. Then I thought of subliminal images as used in video advertising and brainwashing, and then there's the whole topic of sublimated feelings in psychology.

I suspect, Alan, that, as a chemist you are right about the process used to create the fabric, and that, as a coach, I don't know what I'm talking about :?. However, as a teacher of psychology, I can attest that the effect of sublimated patterns on fabric is to produce a subliminal perception of the color/texture of the fabric.

It's one of those areas that I may not know exactly what I'm seeing, but I know what to call it when I do, lol.

Well, I expect you'll find the experiencesublime when you see your very own team dancing with joy, wearing their beloved team kit, after achieving a good win.

Good luck!
