Abstract:

India has always been known as the land that portrays culture and traditional vibrancy through its conventional art and craft. Embroidery is said to be the oldest and beautiful way of surface enhancement. Though, the revival of traditional kasuti embroidery needs to be paired with ways to find new and modern-day expression in harmony with the needs and ends of future citizens of the world, despite the fact valuing the tradition. There is also a need to enhance understanding and to provide necessary support for professional marketing and adaptation to global demands as the craft moves into the new era. The study on revolution of kasuti embroidery motifs as hand painted articles was conducted for exploring the possibility to enhance creativity by adapting traditional kasuti embroidery motifs for hand painting. Total fifteen motifs from three categories i.e. geometrical, floral and animal and bird were selected and converted into forty-five designs. Top three designs were selected each for file folder for further application using hand painting technique. Developed articles were highly acceptable by respondents in terms of created designs, design placements, overall appearance, colour ways, technique and cost. Respondents had high opinion about developed articles. It was found that transformation of innovative designs of kasuti embroidery into hand painting has enhanced the range of designing and productivity. Variability of designs was created through the use of CAD technology using design tools which aided creativity and made the process more efficient.
