Textile Design Lab Member Highlight: Malaysia & Singapore

This Monday kicked off week four of our eight week Summer of Creativity journey in the Textile Design Lab. This year’s theme is travel, and each week we explore a new “destination.” So far we have visited Cape CodJapan, and last week we explored Malaysia and Singapore, the fabulous results of which you can see in today’s post.

Our Textile Design Lab members were given a retro, jungle-inspired design brief to explore for Malaysia, and a futuristic “eco-city” approach to the tropical theme for Singapore. We were blown away by the amazing patterns they created in just seven days and are delighted to share some of that work with you in today’s post. Congrats to all the members who completed last week’s brief and I look forward to sharing more patterns with you next week!

  1. I love those collections. Well done guys! I didn’t get a chance to work on mine sadly but I will still try to get something done regardless of missing the deadline. :)

  4. I have been living in Malaysia as an expat for 8 years now. i recognise the flowers and birds/animals in these beautiful patterns. The red hibiscus is actually the national flower and the hornbill the most famous bird.
