Exploration

The inspiration for this textile print was an idea to explore the parts of fabric, below is a diagram with all its components. Most people are unaware of these terms so I thought it would be interesting to apply this vocabulary directly to the fabric itself.

Block Printing Process

I designed and made each stamp, using them to block print the textiles.

Textile Prints

I chose to stamp the vocabulary terms to their corresponding definition, labeling the fabric as a result. Since the words have meanings outside of textile (bias towards something, grain like the food, etc.) I decided to do a play on words and label the fabric incorrectly as well.
