Digital textile design facilitates the transformation of textile surfaces, allowing designers to explore new ways to perfect their craft. The aim of this study is to investigate how the creation of modern designs inspired by Nubian symbols can retain a special appeal to contemporary audience while preserving the wealth of symbolic meanings associated with the old Nubian heritage. To that end, the research is employing Nubian symbols in the designs and a qualitative methodology through questionnaires. The latter was also used to showcase twenty-four designs and contact participants with specialization and from different cultural backgrounds/ citizenship (i.e. Nubians, non-Nubian), in an attempt to assess whether there is a difference of opinions among experts as far as succeeding to sustain the Nubian symbols by using textile design and computer graphic software is concerned.
