Motifs play an important role in designing. Each motif, like the fabric itself has an origin, evaluation and variety in shape and presentation. In designing, a weaver, embroider, dyer or printer creates dreams of beauty using motifs familiar through culture, religion, environment and history on textiles. Development in any field is essential and continuing process so in the field of traditional textiles. For the development of motifs twenty selected traditional motifs were developed using CAD software into contemporary form and designs were created from these motifs. Best five selected designs were transferred on fifteen saris using appliqué in selected placement for each design and simulation in selected colour way. Fifteen appliqué saris were embellished with hand, machine and digital embroidery.
