In the contemporary textile industry, such processes have been enhanced by the incorporation of technology such as digital printing and computer-aided design (CAD) into the processes. In as much as the creating processes have undergone evolution, there are some aspects of textile design which remain intact over time. These include the inspirational factors, that is, the factors which direct a designer in creating a certain print, the creation process such as weaving or pleating, and the dyeing processes. To elaborate on this, the following study text will create an analysis of a textile object, and highlight all its constituent elements in a collective visual arts and textile design perspective.
The above object, figure1, is a finished textile object in its complete state where in its state depicts a complete woven fabric with colour imprints done on it. It is square in shape with a neat enclosing boundary around it.
