What is the scope for textile desinging?

Asked By: Anonymous 02 Jun 2016


Hi suraj,

Scope of the Textile Design

A textile designer can be employed in the garment, fashion, home furnishing and the interiors segment among other industries. Aneeth Arora, one of India’s emerging designers on the fashion scene, who has a textile education behind her says, “My textile background makes me feel like an artist weaving her own canvas before painting on it. Studying textiles has helped me understand the medium in totality. India has a tradition of rich arts and crafts that one can draw from. Each time I incorporate one textile technique in my work, I am introduced to two three newer ones to work with!”

The textile industry in India is evolving from the handloom, power loom and craft sectors to newer areas, like the paper and automobile industries. Dhanonjay Das, a textile designer employed at Reliance Industries’ Automotive Textile Division elaborates, “Automotive textile deals with the fabric used in car interiors. A car company, say a General Motors or Maruti, designs the interiors of a car keeping certain aesthetics in mind. The brief then goes to the automotive textile company which creates a fabric as per the client’s needs, for the seating of the car with the textile, and sends it to the car company. Automotive textiles need to be designed keeping the end use in mind – durability, comfort and visually appealing. Technological innovations play an extremely important role to suit the use. For example, these days water repellant fabrics are being developed for car interiors.”
