TEXTILE

DESIGN

DEPARTMENT

Textile design focuses on the planning of a fabric’s structure (whether woven or knitted, non-woven or lace, etc.), the designing of the pattern on the fabric’s surface (print, embroidery etc.) and the development of textile products for a wide variety of applications and fields, from fashion and interiors to art.

The field interweaves traditional crafts, advanced industrial design and development and production of smart materials using high-end technologies. The integrative and fundamentally interdisciplinary nature of textile design is expressed in the close link between experimental creative ability, visual and material research and technological knowledge and skill. 

These foundations are derived from the rich history of the world's various textile cultures. Being a basic commodity, textiles are involved in the extreme situations and states of transition of human life (birth, puberty, marriage, death and others) and is one of the first attributes of a civilization. Textiles are suffused with cultural meanings, reflected in their appearance and construction. In today’s world, textiles have become an important practice in contemporary art and in critical debates exploring the boundaries and links between art, craft and design.
