TEXTILE
DESIGN

Textiles is an ancient craft when entering the domain of Design, touches unfathomable depths of creativity. The Bachelor Degree Programme, while incorporating the sensibilities of the traditional, the classical and the contemporary, maintains an interface between materials and making, that creates a challenging and dynamic environment. Creation of patterns, weaves, embellishment and further value addition through motifs, colours and materials by following current fashion trends and visual merchandising are some of the major areas of textile design in which the Department trains the students. The young textile designers of the future are trained to face challenges pertaining to industry and economy, individual and society, techniques and technologies. The department expects and encourages the students to bring forth and experiment with new ideas without a fear of unsuccessful outcomes. It firmly believes that overcoming the fear of failure makes a good designer.

Ecologically and environmentally sustainable design issues are an important and inherent concern of the course. The Department maintains that fabric construction, surface treatments, colour, pattern and trend forecast are the basics for a textile designer but an ethical and conscientious design practice is also a must for a ‘thinking’ textile designer.

The department maintains hand looms, printing and dyeing facilities as well as a computer lab for technological solutions.

Industry-based and craft-interventionist internships are arranged and highly encouraged.
