Abstract


The research dealt on the idea of linking the authenticity values of Saudi Arabia heritage motifs with the current and future advancement of the techno- development for contemporary creative ideas serving the religious tourism field. The different motifs were examined to create appropriate printing designs for hotel furnishings and acceptable pilgrimage women clothing. The software Photoshop program was applied to design colorful wallpapers to give a sense of multiplicity of colors in the design background that were applied on fabrics with tie and dye natural printing using curcuma, cochineal, hibiscus, henna, tea and coffee extracts. The modified designs from the tradition motifs were formed by only one color and applied on the multiplicity colored background by the flat silk screen printing technique regarding the eco-friendly and economical points of view. As a result, this study is considered as a developed idea for the preparation of small-scale projects to reduce unemployment problem in particular for women, through innovative designs which can be applied on textiles with more or less environmental easiest techniques in reducing effort and cost.
