Department of Heritage Textiles & Designing
From fibre to fabric, the design and development of textiles is the key to the business of fashion. Woven, print design, embroidery and surface embellishment are the core textile subjects and together impart an extensive and versatile training for the students. The Heritage Textile Design curriculum offers ample opportunity to students to create, experiment and innovate with materials. The program builds upon the integration of creative forces of design with textile technology, and also keeps in mind the historical, social and cultural contexts in which the designers work today. Alongside there is also emphasis on learning specialized software in order to explore digital and non-traditional approach to design, fabric structures and surfaces. The students also get exposure to a craft environment by way of craft cluster initiative, which sensitizes them to traditional practices. The Textile Design students undertake Graduation Project in their final year which are sponsored by textile mills, export houses, home and apparel retail brands, designers, NGOs or are self sponsored.
