Department of Textile Design

The dynamic Textile Design programme at PIFD aims to develop individual artistic skills along with meeting the industrial demands globally. The programme 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 distinguish between fabric qualities, use of appropriate fibers, yarns, constructions, ornaments & special surface finishes to develop various fabrics in relation 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 & special finishing. They work directly in the labs on campus that are equipped with the latest tools & Industrial machinery. They are also exposed to specialized fields i.e. textile marketing & merchandizing, textile pricing & costing.

PIFD encourages both faculty & students to attend international training programmes. Students securing high grades along with faculty are sent to attend workshops to affiliate institute in Sweden, University of Boras. Previously the dept. has attended workshops & trainings at Rhode Island School of Design, USA & London College of Fashion, LCF, UK, Accademia di Belle Arti di Frosinone, Italy and Accademia del Lusso, Milan, Italy.
