  • Design Portfolio Nubian Wrap A CAD Project
  • Description
    • The following is a CAD project completed for my Computer-Aided Textile Design course in Spring 2011. It was inspired by the people of the indigenous African tribe of Nubia, located in the Northern region of the continent.
  • Inspiration
    • The Nubian people tend to wear predominantly bright blues, purples and greens coupled with simple black or white
    • The majority of women's garments are wrapped and/or hooded
    • Patterns in the designs reflect important aspects of the Nubian culture, specifically the Ankh and the Ram
  • Designs
    • Three different garments and three different original patterns were designed for this project
    • Each garment and print is repeated three times, each with a different colorway
    • Each garment is wrapped with several colored layers of fabric which put a modern, Westernized twist on traditional Nubian garments.
    • The garments are intended to be resort wear for young women in their 20s and 30s
  • The patterns for these garments were inspired by the Ankh – an important religious symbol to the Nubian people. This was coupled with designs inspired by small, colorful gems frequently used to decorate around the eyes of Nubian women for special occasions.
  • The patterns for these garments were inspired by the ram – a deity in the Nubian culture. The pattern is reflective of a statue which depicts a ram centered between two wings, which do not appear to be attached to the animal.
  • The patterns for these garments were inspired again by the ram, but focus exclusively on the powerful, curved horns of the animal. The horns are made into an abstracted, intertwining pattern which is both spiritually and aesthetically pleasing.
