Textile designer

   A textile designer creates a textile palette for designers to choose from for each collection/season. A strong sense of color and pattern design is mandatory. Textile designers create plaids, patterns, and checks, as well as various combinations of textures, yarns, and textile design surfaces. Computer software programs, such as U4ia, are often used to help illustrate the designer's designs.
