India is a diverse country with varied cultures, art forms and traditions. These bring richness to the living, life and lifestyle. The textile handicrafts of the country imbibe rich history, aesthetics and exquisite designs, which are reflected through their varied designing. Taking inspiration from durrie motifs the present study was conducted on adaptation of durrie motifs for development of innovative designs. 146 traditional durrie motifs were collected from various secondary sources. The identified motifs were sketched manually and scanned from books, magazines etc. which were further recreated and modified in CorelDRAW X5 and Adobe Photoshop softwares to get the required complexity and elegance. The selected motifs were categorized in three categories viz. geometrical, floral and animals & birds motifs and five top preferred motifs from each category were selected for development of designs. The motifs selected for design development were motif number 24 (WMS 2.66), 26 (WMS 2.60), 2 (WMS 2.50), 5 (WMS 2.46) and 6 (WMS 2.33) in geometrical motif category, motif number 7 (WMS 2.83), 9 (WMS 2.63), 30 (WMS 2.43), 14 (WMS 2.36) and 21 (WMS 2.33) in floral motifs category, in animal & bird motifs category the selected motifs were motif number 7 (WMS 2.73), 15 (WMS 2.50) , 2 (WMS 2.43), 1 (WMS 2.26) and 30 WMS 2.23). Total forty five designs were prepared using selected fifteen motifs and fifteen top preferred designs were selected for varied application.
