I wanted to inquire about the forum's experiences, thoughts and ideas on designing my own patterns for ties. I have a few prints in mind that are of cultural value that I believe are refined and tasteful to be worn in a professional setting, yet individualistic to express myself. I thought I could make some for myself and if it is successful, I could expand it into a small venture. Has someone undertaken a similar venture before? Does anyone have experience designing and printing a fabric on silk or linen for example.
