Abstract:

Under the research work fine embroidered designs of Chikankari were adapted using CAD on diwan cover sets to widen the existing product range with the novel look. Out of total 50 motifs, the top scored 5 motifs were selected and arranged in different ways using rotation, flipping, to form different repeats brick, block dihedral, half drop e.t.c. The developed repeats were assessed on the parameters like size of the motif, placement of the motif and overall appearance. The top scored repeats were then arranged in different styles using single and combinations of motifs (double motifs and triple motifs) for the designing of diwan cover sets. Total 12 arrangement layouts which included 4 each single, double and triple motif arrangement were prepared using COREL DRAW X3. These layout sheets were evaluated by the panel of experts using 5 point rating scale on different parameters i.e. clarity of designs, novelty of designs, design proportion and overall appearance. Diwan cover arrangement no. DWT1, DWS2 and DWD1 secured highest weighted mean scores of 4.52, 4.36 and 4.35 respectively. The judges appreciated the developed motifs, repeats for designing and also had an opinion that the developed designs in the study will help in breaking the monotony of the existing designs and would enhance the range of designing and production of home furnishing articles to embrace the global market.
