Toothpaste, pedestrian crossing or barcode deluxe? We wonder if Coco Chanel was aware how much of a fashion craze she started by developing a collection based on the original nautical striped Breton shirt back in the 1920s. Stripes are meanwhile omnipresent in the world of fashion and the current fixation is showing no signs of abating.
Surprise us with your very own interpretation of the classic stripe! Create extraordinary, new variations of stripes and mix them up with exciting new elements. Artificial-looking stripes on top of large-scale flowers and bright colors could be key to the look. Dynamic, expressive hand-painted brushstrokes create a vibrant art-house feel that could update eclectic patterns. Experiment with contrasts, structures, scanned elements and techniques. Don’t be afraid of complexity!
Out-of-place stripes on large-scale digital images are just one of the various options this theme offers. Go further in your interpretation by using digital interventions or random glitches to transport your print into your own futuristic realms.

The best designs submitted on jovoto will be chosen and presented to select international fashion brands by the client, who is a renowned textile supplier. In addition to winning up to 5,000€ in community awards, a huge opportunity awaits, to be licensed by a large fashion brand. For every licensed design, you will be paid 100€ for the initial design and an additional 0.20€ in royalties for each meter printed. The amount purchased can be up to 20,000 meters per design.
Be inspired by our previous textile design projects and see the many excellent designs that were created for Artificial Garden, Chinoiserie-Chic and the first two projects in the Textile Orbit: The Lacemaker and Work in Progress!
Textile Orbit – The third challenge!
“Barcode Deluxe” is the third textile design brief for the Textile Orbit, a carefully curated group of the best textile and pattern designers on the jovoto platform. The designers in the Textile Orbit have the opportunity to access this and other exciting textile design challenges in the future.
jovoto and our client wants to revolutionize the textile industry with you! Textile Orbit is not only the first talent pool on jovoto, but also a completely new way of working within the fashion industry, that you will play a part in establishing!
The client is seeking to build up a long-term relationship with you and throughout the course of the project you will get to know their values, structures and business, piece by piece, little by little.
To establish this relationship, the client wants to enable you to create the best possible patterns based on the latest fashion trends by giving you comprehensive feedback from the fashion market. You will also gain confidential insights into how their business works that will help you understand their complete design process. As soon as a good relationship and a solid process has been established, the client will reveal their identity!
They are super excited about the road ahead and invite you to participate and share your ideas and feedback. Stay tuned for further information about them soon!
The goal of this project is to gather a wide range of textile patterns focusing on the theme “Barcode Deluxe”. The best designs will be presented to well-known international fashion brands to be licensed and used in their current and upcoming collections.
