Chamoisee (pronounced /ʃæmwɑːˈzeɪ/), also spelled chamoise, is a color most often found in the Oberhasli and sometimes the Alpine goat. A goat that has chamoisee colorings usually has a black face, feet, legs, and sometimes black on the chest. There is also a black dorsal stripe running down the goat's back. The rest of the goat is colored chamoisee.

The first recorded use of chamoise as a color name in English was in the year 1766. [1]
