Pages: 208

Release: 2020-08-06
Editor: Bloomsbury Publishing

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The Fundamentals of Printed Textile Design explores contemporary practice in printed textile design. It outlines the process of creating designs, looking at the vital role played by drawing, colour, style and content. It also analyses how to contextualise and communicate effectively in order to build a professional portfolio, whether through traditional design staples or via a more original approach. It examines the positions occupied by designers in the industry, and the technical and ethical considerations of which they must be aware. In order to design effectively, print and pattern practitioners need to understand not only how the industry works but must also consider the cultural and economic factors that can shape what future clients or consumers will require. This book suggests strategies for developing an understanding of these contexts within and beyond the fashion and textiles industry to provide an innovative resource for the designers of today and tomorrow.

Author: Elaine Igoe

Release: 2021-07-15
Editor: Bloomsbury Publishing

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Textile design inhabits a liminal space spanning art, design and craft. This book explores how textile design bridges the decorative and the functional, and takes us from handcrafting to industrial manufacture. In doing so, it distinguishes textiles as a distinctive design discipline, against the backdrop of today's emerging design issues. With commentaries from a range of international design scholars, the book demonstrates how design theory is now being employed in diverse scenarios to encourage innovation beyond the field of design itself. Positioning textiles within contemporary design research, Textile Design Theory in the Making reveals how the theory and practice of textile design exist in a synergistic, creative relationship. Drawing on qualitative research methods, including auto-ethnography and feminist critique, the book provides a theoretical underpinning for textile designers working in interdisciplinary scenarios, uniting theory and texts from the fields of anthropology, philosophy, literature and material design.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Textile Technology and Design addresses the critical role of the interior at the intersection of design and technology, with a range of interdisciplinary arguments by a wide range of contributors: from design practitioners to researchers and scholars to aerospace engineers. Chapters examine the way in which textiles and technology – while seemingly distinct – continually inform each other through their persistent overlapping of interests, and eventually coalesce in the practice of interior design. Covering all kinds of interiors from domestic (prefabricated kitchens and 3D wallpaper) to extreme (underwater habitats and space stations), it features a variety of critical aspects including pattern and ornament, domestic technologies, craft and the imperfect, gender issues, sound and smart textiles. This book is essential reading for students of textile technology, textile design and interior design.

Editor: Bloomsbury Publishing

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

While the topic of sustainability in textile manufacture has been the subject of considerable research, much of this is limited to a focus on materials and practices and their ecological impact. Padovani and Whittaker offer a unique exploration of the textile industry in Europe from the perspective of social sustainability, shifting the focus from the materiality of textile production to the industry's relationships with the communities from which the products originate. Featuring six in-depth case studies from design entrepreneurs, artisans and textile businesses around Europe, from Harris Tweed in Scotland to luxury woollen mills in Italy, Sustainability and the Social Fabric explores how new centres of textile manufacturing have emerged from the economic decline in 2008, responding creatively and producing socially inclusive approaches to textile production. Case studies each represent a different approach to social sustainability and are supported by interviews with industry leaders and comparisons to the global textile industry. Demonstrating how some companies are rebuilding the local social fabric to encourage consumer participation through education, enterprise, health and wellbeing, the book suggests innovative business models that are economically successful and also, in turn, support wider societal issues. Essential reading for students of textiles, fashion, design and related subjects, this book will demonstrate how a business ecosystem that focuses on inclusive growth and social innovation can lead to sustained mutual benefit for textile industries and their local communities.

Release: 2016-09-08
Editor: Bloomsbury Publishing

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In an era of increasingly available digital resources, many textile designers and makers find themselves at an interesting juncture between traditional craft processes and newer digital technologies. Highly specialized craft/design practitioners may now elect to make use of digital processes in their work, but often choose not to abandon craft skills fundamental to their practice, and aim to balance the complex connection between craft and digital processes. The essays collected here consider this transition from the viewpoint of aesthetic opportunity arising in the textile designer's hands-on experimentation with material and digital technologies available in the present. Craft provides the foundations for thinking within the design and production of textiles, and as such may provide some clues in the transition to creative and thoughtful use of current and future digital technologies. Within the framework of current challenges relating to sustainable development, globalization, and economic constraints it is important to interrogate and question how we might go about using established and emerging technologies in textiles in a positive manner.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Draw, stamp, screen print, and more to create gorgeous art cloth! Intentional Printing walks you through a two-part approach to fabric design. Author Lynn Krawczyk starts by showing you how to develop your own distinct printing style by first identifying the colors, themes, and processes that speak to you and then using those ideas repeatedly to explore your furthest possibilities. At the same time, Lynn urges you to think beyond simply printing fabric and consider how the finished cloth will be used. She demonstrates a variety of printing, stamping, painting, and color techniques, encouraging you to identify what draws you back again and again and to push your personal themes as far as possible. Using examples of her work, Lynn then shows how she adapts her own preferred imagery to projects, explaining what works and what does not. You emerge with a solid knowledge of basic printing techniques, an understanding of how to apply them for maximum impact, and an appreciation of your own personal creative voice.
