The graduation project attempts to create a collection of home furnishing fabrics that tell a tale of itself - a story made up of rich patterns, colours, and weaves that has the capacity to change everything it comes across.
The project was aimed at creating samples for a new range of home furnishing textiles (that includes fixed and loose upholstery and curtains) for the upcoming International Textile fairs. Various techniques like jacquard, embroidery, velvets and digital printing samples or combinations of these techniques were used to manufacture samples. These designs will be included in the company’s collection for the upcoming International Textile Fair targeting specific clients. The collection is to be designed according to the season and ongoing trends.
This project has resulted in the making of two collections with a total of nineteen designs making into production and a final lengthy sample to be included into the collection of UTM/JSML for the International Textile Fair. The first collection ' Tradere' is a range of home furnishing fabrics that are designed for the client 'G.P & J Baker', that has been inspired by a wide spectrum of tradition arts and textiles with a hint of modern touch. It’s a combination of traditional and modern styles and a balanced play of muted as well as vibrant colours. The second collection 'Bloem' is a range of home furnishing fabrics that are designed for the client Harlequin and is inspired from the rich landscapes and flora of Netherlands.
This project was not only a journey of an idea transformed into a fabric of vibrant patterns, but also her path of discovering her strengths and weaknesses in a completely different environment while learning something new along the path.
