Rationale
Textile craft or art is the process of making the creative art pieces by using different textile materials, fibres, yarns and fabrics. The textile craft/arts include those techniques which are used to embellish or decorate textiles – dyeing and printing to add color and pattern; embroidery and other types of needlework, tablet weaving and lacemaking. Construction methods such as sewing, knitting, crochet, and tailoring, as well as the tools employed like-looms and sewing needles, techniques employed likequilting and pleating and the objects made such as-carpets, hooked rugs and coverlets, etc. All these items fall under the category of textile arts. Textile designers are expected to be aware of creating various such designs on textiles to create variety, attraction, good looks, and aesthetics. Thus textile craft occupies an important position for textile designers.
