The role of textile designer is to design and produce, to an agreed timetable, an agreed number of commercially viable fabric designs.
Still some textile designers design some patterns manually by hand but it is time consuming.Uusually they draw or paint their design onto paper, then scan their designs into the computer and edit the photograph using various kinds of software. In today’s business environment it is not possible to continue designing textiles without computers. The textile design tools available on computers produces much finer and quicker results.
