ASID Kravet Textile Design Student Chanllenge

Sponsored by  Kravet and the American Society of Interior Designers, the competition pairs each competing team, comprised of students from the New York metropolitan area, with a design mentor, and challenges them to create a textile based on a country and its culture assigned to them (in this case Armenia, Bali, France, Ghana, India, and Uzbekistan).

Our country assigned was India, India’s textiles are largely based on embroidery, which is a hand-stitched embellishment. My teammates and I were fascinated by this and used it to inspire our design. The goal was to create an abstract version of stitches and thread. Th white zig zag pattern portrayed the stitch and a blue ombre pattern that ran horizontally portrayed the thread.
