Designing & Construction of Hand Bags by Using Kalamkari Motifs through Resist Techniques with Different Surface Ornamentations


Abstract


The present study has been carried out with the objectives of providing a range of bags to the customers & creation of bags with some new deigning aspects. To attain these objectives firstly the survey was done to have a review over existing designs, shapes, color, embellishments and other consumer preferences regarding bags. After survey 15 shapes were decided to be sketched and made which were selected by own choice of the researcher. Then 24 design sheets were sketched with selected shape of bags. Then an evaluation was done with the sample group of Banasthali Vidyapith. Then 8 design sheets were selected by the respondents on the basis of 3-point rating scale for given parameters of evaluation. Then mean values were calculated for all ratings and then 8 best sheets were chosen for development of prototypes of bags. After that, prototypes of bags were constructed as per the best designs selected. The fabrics of bags were prepared through resist techniques with embroidery. After preparing the fabrics adornment was done by using different adornment techniques like beads, laces, brooches & buttons etc. The bags were then made with the stitching process, which was done by machine. After developing the bags, consumer acceptability and market value of designed bags was determined on the basis of further evaluation which was done with the help of another 3-point rating scale.
