Embroidery is one of oldest and beautiful way of surface ornamentation. However, the revival of traditional kasuti embroidery needs to be twinned with ways to find new and contemporary expression in harmony with the needs and aspirations of future citizens of the world, while valuing the traditional. There is also a need to enhance understanding and to provide necessary support for professional marketing and adaptation to global demands as the craft moves into the new era. Therefore, the present study on transformation of kasuti embroidery motifs as hand painted articles was conducted for exploring the possibility to enhance creativity by adapting traditional kasuti embroidery motifs for hand painting. Total fifteen motifs from three categories i.e. geometrical, floral and animal and bird were selected and converted into forty-five designs. Top three designs were selected each for jacket for further application using hand painting technique. Developed articles were highly acceptable by respondents in terms of created designs, design placements, colour ways, technique, overall appearance and cost. Respondents had high opinion about developed articles. It was found that transformation of innovative designs of kasuti embroidery into hand painting has enhanced the range of designing and productivity. Variety of designs was created through the use of CAD technology employing design tools which aided creativity and made the process more efficient.
