ISSN- 0975-3486, RNI-RAJBIL 2009/30097;VoL.III *ISSUE-31 Research Paper—Fashion & Textile Technology Simulation of Designs of Gota Work of Rajasthan April, 2012 * Prof Radha Kashyap **Ms Sulekha Ojha * Head, **Asst. Prof. Dept. of Fashion & Textile Technology, The IIS University, JaipurA B S T R A C T Indian embroidery has been synonymous with the traditional fabric embellishment. The present study is an attempt to explore the Gota work motifs of Rajasthan and develop contemporary designs through CorelDraw. The modern technique aims at simulation of motifs of gota work documented through books and museum. The manual method of designing is tedious, consumes lots of time and laborious as compared to CorelDraw, which has more advantage in respect to speed, pattern creations, editing and repeating the motifs which will be beneficiary to the artisans, designers and people associated in the field of Fashion & Textile.Keywords: Gota work, CorelDraw, Simulation, Designing, Rajasthan.Introduction: Types of Gota: Indian culture and its rich heritage are re- Various types of gota are sikhiyagota,flected in costumes and embroideries of various re- chaumasa, panchmasa, athmasa, lappa, thappa,gions of the country.

The possibilities of designing are endlesswith the introduction of CAD. It plays a vital role infacilitating the creations of new designs and improv-ing existing designs. (Bogart, 2003).The present study was undertaken to document thetraditional motifs and design of gota work and tosimulate innovative designs with the help of Com-puter Aided Designing.Creation of Motifs: The traditional motif is defined as one whichpasses from generations and is inspired by the floraand fauna of nature. They can classified into butis, jaaland border. Creative designing is the process wherethe designer plays with the arrangement of line, formand colour to create beauty to the end product.The locale of the study was Jaipur. The motifs weredocumented from museum, books and libraries. Aninspiration from traditional gota work motifs, innova-tive designs were stylised from butis, jaals and bordersthrough CorelDraw software.

It would not be wrong to conclude that such a study would definitely help to preserve the traditional embroidery of Rajasthan along with contemporisation and conser- vation of the art which is the need of the hour. Such studies would further help to popularize and inspire others to preserve the traditional, cultural and aes- thetic skills.
