The use of embroidery to decorate clothes has been around since man began to wear clothes. As a method of decorating and embellishing clothing, embroidered designs came out as a result of hard work and care. Embroidery as an art has origin that can be traced far back to the Iron Age. This journey began when primitive man discovered that he could use thread to join pieces of fur to make clothes. India has a rich heritage of embroideries. Traditional embroidery has always been a form of self-expression for the women and expresses the cultural traditions and religious beliefs of the society to which they belong. The process of doing embroidery is time consuming and painstaking. In an era of time stress, there is a need to explore the possibility of transformation of embroidery designs for fabric paintings, as the people engaged in the activity of fabric embellishments, find it convenient and less time consuming resulting in more earning. The results of study, “Adaptation of Traditional Embroidery Designs for Fabric Painting on Jacket” would be beneficial for women entrepreneurship and in maintaining the beauty of traditional embroideries. This adaptation of traditional skills on to the Jacket – a component of the dress of the young women in I.T. and private sector will not only exhibit the Indian culture but also increase the production and income of the entrepreneurs.
