Revival of traditional embroidery painting is considered as an important aspect in present scenario. A study was conducted to explore the possibility of adaptation of kathiawar embroidery motifs for fabric painting. Seventy collected kathiawar embroidery motifs were categorized as geometrical, floral and animal & bird motifs and were screened into thirty motifs keeping in mind their suitability for fabric painting on jacket. These three categories included ten motifs each. Thus, a total of thirty motifs were finalized for further research work. The selected motifs were scanned to convert them from print version to digital format and edited with the help of Corel DRAW software. The proportion of motifs was changed to make them suitable for fabric painting on jacket. Selected motifs were got evaluated from thirty experts. A total of twelve motifs including four top ranked motifs from each category i.e. geometrical, floral and animal & bird motifs were selected by experts to create twenty designs for each motif. A total of sixty designs were created using total twelve selected motifs with the help of CorelDraw software. This can open the avenues for the designers especially for those who create kathiawar inspired clothing to display on global platform. This study will cater the demands of high-end consumers through diversity of designs and unique technique of fabric painting.
