Bachelor degrees offer professionals a way to distinguish themselves as knowledgeable in their fields. The degree demonstrates a commitment to a field and an ability to work under pressure.

What is a Bachelor in Textile Design? Textile design covers all the design work done with fabrics. This includes the more commercial work done for fashion, carpeting, upholstering as well as handcrafted, artisanal work along the lines of weaving and knitting. Textile design programs vary in focus because of the wide range of work that is available within the field. Color theory and design theory are some of the most common coursework. Specifying a field shortens a list of potential programs, so it is key to selecting a suitable university.

Many jobs in textiles are heavily commercial, so basic accounting skills are covered in most textile design programs, helpful in most business careers. Digital programs such as CAD are taught for easier fabric design, alongside traditional methods of hand drawing and painting designs. Students may also learn how to create patterns from scratch.

Textile design degrees have no set cost. The tuition is determined by school location and other factors. A bachelor will require three or four years for most students, so calculate accordingly.

A Bachelor in Textile Design prepares graduates for jobs in a variety of commercial and fashion industries. Textile designers may be in charge of textile production, managing the pattern, colors and materials used for textiles. Designers also work on the more technical side, in textile programming and designing patterns through software. Artisan textile production done by hand is a position in some small businesses.

You can earn a bachelor’s degree in textile design from a variety of universities around the world that offer it. If you have a packed schedule, look into degrees earned online.

The three-year course in Fashion Textile Design aims to train highly flexible professionals with an in-depth understanding of all stages from manufacturing to the marketing of the product, professionals with a solid cultural background, and a high ability to perform in a team. The contemporary fashion system demands that designers have a strong multidisciplinary approach and are able to successfully deal with all requests from the field: the technological textile process, fabric design, trend dynamics, the development of new computational techniques, and communication processes related to fashion. The Fashion and Textile Designer must develop on one hand a great insight on the trends of the avant-garde taste, and, on the other hand, must have a strong capacity for dialogue and mediation among all business functions: from marketing to production, from model to tailor, photographers, journalists, communication experts. We keep constantly in mind the “world of trend” when we organize and define Fashion classes. -
