AC Mood Board: Indian Textile Pattern Book

By Attireclub @attireclub

Textiles have always been an important part of society as they represent one of the bases of clothing and other things such as blankets and covers that are destined to cover and protect us. Therefore, they fulfill both a practical role, as well as fulfilling an aesthetic need.

In recent decades, textiles have lost their importance, as fashion schools don’t focus so much on textiles, their features and the way they work, as on design and more than anything, unconventional design from simple fabrics or from unconventional materials.

However, the textile is making a come-back, as we need more and more things to touch that have a different surface than the straight surfaces of our screens and keyboards.

We believe that textiles from around the world should be brought back in the spotlight and that the average consumer should have a sense of what textiles are and how they can influence your life.

In a small step to recover the importance of textiles at a global level, we have found a beautiful collection of Indian textile patterns from an old book.

While these aren’t unique or very special patterns, they do represent a world where it matters how fabric is woven and worn.

In our modern eyes, we might see them as prints, but these in fact refer to textures, meaning a material that is woven in shape it showcases, not a simple fabric that is then digitally printed.

These patterns are quite common in India today too, those who have traveled to India should be familiar with them. However, the Indian fabrics and textures array is extremely big and impressive, mimicking the vast and dynamic culture of the country that today inhabits over 1 billion people.

These intricate patterns are also a reflection of Indian society itself, which is very intricate and complex, but that manages to survive in time and against the odds.

These patterns serve as a great source of inspiration. They are story-telling motifs that can put a spin on any thought or garment.

In fact, one can’t help but think of the endless possibilities in which these textile patterns can be used; in what type of garments they can be translated: casual, dressy, day, night, structured, flowy…

Our imagination of what can be done with these textiles is the only limit.
