This work places itself in the field of textile design, printed surface patterns and pleating. The primary motive for this work is to bring together pleating and surface patterns by designing surface patterns that are the main component of pleating. The aim is to combine printed surface patterns with pleating in order to design contemporary two-sided textiles for a spatial context.
Different pleating patterns have been tested in combination with material and scale. Small paper sketches have been used to develop the surface patterns and to see how the different surface patterns are merging with each other when printed on both sides of the fabric. The printing method that has been used is transfer print. The result is a collection of three different textiles printed with surfaces patterns on both sides of the fabric. For further development the textiles can be placed in an interior context and serve as room dividers.
