India had always been known as the land that portrayed cultural and traditional vibrancy through its conventional arts and crafts. Every region in India has its own style and folk art which are very exclusive for that particular region and has its own speciality with regards to colours, motifs used that symbolized the rich heritage. Folk art of India has a great demand in the western countries due to its traditional aesthetic sensibility and authenticity. The two most famous folk painting are Warli art of Maharashtra and Madhubani art of Mithila. Traditionally these paintings were done by hand which is time consuming and laborious process, but with technological advancement, these designs can be created directly with the help of CAD and applied on textiles through Digital Printing. It is now possible with CAD and digital printing to go straight from an initial idea to visual representation of fabric showing these designs in combination of colors within minutes. The present study was an attempt to develop fusion designs from these two folk paintings using CAD and adapt them on apparels using digital printing. It will be an effort to reveal the unexplored treasures to the world by introducing the newly developed fusion designs from the Plethora of these arts and to open new avenues for artisans to revolutionize the Fashion world and empower them
