Welcome to the Textile Design program at Iqra University, Islamabad Campus, where creativity and technical excellence intertwine to shape the future of the textile industry. Our program is designed to cultivate both the artistic vision and technical expertise needed to excel in textile design, both in the local and international markets.

At Iqra University, we believe in fostering a deep appreciation for the rich heritage of textile arts while embracing innovation and modern techniques. Throughout the four-year full-time bachelor’s degree program, students are exposed to a comprehensive curriculum that covers a range of essential skills and knowledge.

The journey begins with foundational concepts, where students master basic drawing techniques, explore the elements and principles of design, and gain a solid understanding of fibers and fabrics. As students progress into the second year, they delve into the diverse world of textile methods, exploring weaving, digital printing, and traditional printing techniques.

In the third year, students broaden their horizons as they dive into the realms of home and apparel design. They also acquire valuable marketing and management skills, preparing them for success in the competitive textile industry. Finally, in the culmination of their studies, the fourth year provides students with the opportunity to unleash their creativity and bring their personal ideas and inspirations to life through the design and production of their own textile collection.

Our program stands as a catalyst for innovation, empowering students to push the boundaries of traditional textile design and embrace new possibilities. With a focus on practical application and industry relevance, students are equipped with the skills and knowledge to create marketable products that resonate with both local and global audiences.

Join us at Iqra University’s Textile Design program and embark on a transformative journey that will shape your artistic vision and unleash your full potential in the exciting world of textile design.
