Efficacy of Developed ‘Card Weaving Module’ for Creating Structural Variations in Textile Products

Authors(2) :-Dr. Meenu Srivastava, Ranvir Kaur

Card weaving is a simple, easy weaving method, but designing patterns is typically laborious and requires knowledge, experience, and skill. The present investigation explored efficacy of developed card weaving module in creating structural variations in 2,4 and 6 holed cards through various pattern drafts. The researcher used the self-developed ‘Card Weaving Module’ to create 25 different end use products under various categories, i.e. Personal accessories, Household articles, Outer wear and Utility items, using selected 5 pattern designs of each of the 2,3,4,5 and 6 holed cards looking into the aspects of easy workability, savings in time and cost etc. The yarn size, texture and colour were also kept in mind while developing the products to increase the aesthetic appeal and functionality.Different personal and utilitarian products developed by the researcher with the help of developed ‘Card Weaving Module’ were evaluated by panel of judges using a rating Proforma, developed for this purpose.
