The Effect of Hand Drawn Line Distortion on Impression Evaluation of Stripe Pattern:- Comparative Study of Japan and Finland -

Access this Article



In this research, we noted that fuzzy distortion is a result of the uniqueness of handwork. Initially, we attempted to analyze the effect of distorted characteristics on evaluation by conducting comparative experiments with hand drawn stripes and computer drawn stripes. Fundamentally, we were interested in understanding the contrast between preferences in textile pattern design in Japan and Finland from the point of view of both consumers and producers. In addition, we were curious about the recent presence of a Finnish fabric brand in the Japanese market. The framework of our research included comparative design experiments that were conducted in Japan and Finland involving people from the design field. The experiments were conducted using six stripe patterns that were either hand drawn or computer drawn in three different levels of thickness. For evaluation purposes, we used 14 semantic differential pairs on a 7-point Likert scale. We analyzed the results by a three-way ANOVA. As a result, we discovered that there were significant differences between Finnish and Japanese participants. This indicated that the evaluation structure in textile design can be different in the two countries. Throughout this research, we observed culture-based differences in trend evaluation. We also found differences in features of hand-drawn patterns.
