Department of Heritage Textile & Design

From fiber 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 for 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 an emphasis on learning specialized software in order to explore the digital and non-traditional approaches 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 is sponsored by textile mills, export houses, home, and apparel retail brands, designers, NGOs or are self-sponsored.
