Textile / Surface Pattern Designer for Interior Textiles in Bangalore, India

Textile / Surface Pattern Designer Wanted for Interior Textiles

I have a client – a reputable weaving mill based in Bangalore, India – supplying many of Worlds major furnishing fabric brands – who is offering 2 UK designers the opportunity of a 1 year contract to work in the Design Studio at their mill – this can be extended as many designers do – if you like the work and they like you.

Over the last 10+ years I have sent many graduates & experienced designers abroad to work – so you can talk to them about their experiences before you decide to take the job.  Many of them have returned to the UK and with this experience on their CV have found excellent design jobs within the industry for example for  Prestigious, Zoffany, Next, Harlequin and Ashley Wilde to name just a few!

All that is required is that you have a degree in Surface Pattern, Weave, Embroidery or Print design with excellent drawing skills.

First interviews will take place in May.

The shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by my client and the chosen designers will travel out together – to join the design team at the mill at a time that is convenient for all parties in July/August 2017.

Some more info:

  • The mill producesflat weaves, cut and loop velvets, sheers and embroideries.
  • They have a team of 10 English speaking designers 
  • Happy for you to use Photoshop and NED graphics
  • You will be working on design, colour and customer projects
  • The company will arrange and pay for all your travelling expenses including the return flights along with the Visa and Insurance.
