THE SCHOOL OF TEXTILES AND MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY


Textile Design Department
Featured Student

During her internship at Valdese Weavers, Amanda Dunnenberger was able to do some designing on her own. Using the company's archives for research, she created a design which she decided to produce in a matelassé weave structure. At first her design was obscured by the puffiness of the structure and the texture of the bouclé yarn she chose. Amanda was able to study similar fabrics to overcome this problem. She digitized her design and worked with the CAD specialists to create her repeat. Then the actual weaving began. Her courses in design, research, yarn and weave structure as well as computer aided design all came into play.
