The dynamic textile design program at PIFD aims to develop individual artistic skills along with
meeting the industrial demands globally. The program encourages the students to explore various
dimensions of textile applications for certain target groups. Students are exposed to both
conceptual & technical aspects of textile design. This helps them to recognize fabric qualities,
use of appropriate fibers, yarns, constructions, ornaments and special surface finishes to develop
various fabrics in relating to final products. The four year degree offers specialization in either
home or apparel design.
Students get opportunity to learn skills like weaving, knitting, printing and special finishing.
They work directly in the labs on campus that are equipped with the latest tools and Industrial
machinery. They are also exposed to specialized fields i.e. textile marketing & merchandizing,
textile pricing & costing.
PIFD encourages both faculty and students to attend international training programs. Students
securing high grades along with faculty, are sent to attend workshops that are held at affiliated
institute in Sweden, University of Boras. Previously, the department. has attended workshops
and trainings at Rhode Island School of Design, USA & London College of Fashion, LCF, UK.
