Abstract:

Motifs play an important role in designing. Each motif, like the fabric itself has an origin, evaluation and variety in shape and presentation. In designing, a weaver, embroider, dyer or printer creates dreams of beauty using motifs familiar through culture, religion, environment and history on textiles. Development in any field is essential and continuing process so in the field of traditional textiles. The information was gathered from thirty shops for contemporary use of motifs, categories of motifs and other techniques adapted for traditional embroideries. The maximum no. of floral motifs of Chikankari, Phulkari, Kashida & Kathiawar embroidery were in contemporary use which were mainly worked in machine embroidery except the Kantha embroidery. Out of collected embroideries through market survey, one embroidery that is Kantha was selected. Fifty motifs of selected embroidery were collected from primary and secondary sources. Out of these, fifteen motifs were selected to develop stylized designs for jacket. Fifteen stylized designs were developed and five possible placements of each design were prepared with the help of coral draw.
