WHAT IS TEXTILE DESIGN?

Textile design is essentially the process of creating designs for woven, knitted or printed fabrics or surface ornamented fabrics. Textile designers are involved with the production of these designs, which are used, sometimes repetitively, in clothing and interior decor items.

Textiles are anything that is made up of yarns, fabrics, or fibers. To be useful, they must have flexibility, abrasion resistance, strength, and moisture control properties. Sometimes textiles are used in materials meant to be protective, such as bulletproof vests, helmets worn by soldiers, and cut resistant gloves used by butchers. The carpeting on the floor of a school, the gowns worn by nurses and doctors, and the sound absorption wall coverings in a theatre are all examples of textiles. Textile design is a highly creative field that involves the process of creating the designs that are printed on these woven, knitted, or other types of fabrics.

WHAT DOES TEXTILE DESIGNER DO?

Textile designers are highly-creative people who can draw, have a superior eye for color, pattern, and texture, and an appreciation for the fine points of textiles and fashion. They recognize the fluctuations in trends and fashion, understand textile techniques, are good communicators, possess problemsolving skills, and enjoy a challenge, all while staying on budget and deadline.

In other words, a designer will incorporate both their initial creative vision of the finished textile with the technical aspects of production, while keeping in mind the characteristics of certain dyes, fibers, finishes, and yarns. Today, nearly all professional textile designers use CAD (computer-aided software) to create designs on fabrics or other surfaces.
