Overview

The Pattern Base presents textile and surface design by some of the most exciting up-and-coming designers worldwide and points to the way ahead for this vibrant field

The future possibilities of print, pattern and clothing are endless and this book leads the way into that future – it is a wonderful sourcebook for all students, professionals and enthusiasts of textile and fashion design.

The Pattern Base includes illustrative, abstract, geometric, floral, representational and digital designs; and knitted, woven, hand-dyed and digitally printed fabrics, all drawn from the author’s online archive and blog, which she co-founded with Audrey Victoria Keiffer.

In tandem with the rise of exciting new technologies is a renewed appreciation of traditional craftsmanship and the handmade; of the tactility and construction of fabrics of all kinds. Illustrated biographies profile thirteen of the most significant textiles designers working today, who share new ways to communicate, experiment and become inspired.
