The Design Methods of Najin Products with Jacquard-Weaving Embroidery Effect
National traditional crafts are a treasure-house of rich heritage, and traditional culture with Chinese style and folkloric becomes attractive in recent years, then the innovational combination of traditional elements and modern fashion is the only way towards further industry development. Meanwhile, as one kind of special traditional embroideries, the art and process characteristics of Najin meet the requirements of jacquard weaving. On the basis of jacquard-weaving embroidery, this paper designs Najin style fabrics, in which the ground yarn is grounded on openwork weaves, and embroidery based on weft whole float long as well as the principle of space mixed color. Applying elements of paper-cutting arts in pattern design with Najin’s horizontal, vertical and inclined changing, a richly innovative design is developed. While proving the feasibility of jacquard-weaving embroidery, this paper also provides promising future for the fading Najin culture.
