      • “Low volume fabrics are commonly shades of white, beige, gray and pale pastels with low-contrast prints. Many have graphic designs such as text, dots, florals and novelty prints. The distinction of low volume fabrics is that the overall color and design are neutral enough to be considered a background fabric.”
