the process: textile design

Textile design. The process of designing the actual fabric prints is such a fun way to spend my time. As usual, I've discovered yet another realm in the art-world that seems vast and never-ending in which I want to jump in and learn it all. There is inspiration everywhere for prints - clouds, plants, detailed ironwork, architecture, etc. image_3 print process print process1print process7print process2print process3print process4print process5print process9print process6 

Have you ever thought about the process that goes into designing and creating prints for textiles? What makes a garment attractive to you? Which do you prefer - solids or prints?
