Abstract

Traditional clothing is a cultural heritage that should be preserved and expanded upon. Traditional fabrics that were once only used at traditional events are now catching the attention of the fashion industry. As a result, various innovations are developed to help traditional fabrics sell well in today's market. The concept of crystallographic groups is one of the innovations that can be used to develop motifs or patterns. Crystallographic groups are a mathematical classification of two-dimensional repeating patterns that are based on symmetry. Patterns like this are common in architecture and decorative arts, particularly in textiles, tiles, and wallpaper. In this study, the authors generated North Sumatran songket motifs based on 11 crystallographic group patterns using the MATLAB GUI program. The findings of this study can be used as a resource for art activists developing fabric motifs in the future.
