Woven terry fabrics are of the most popular fabrics that are used for home textiles. Although the fabrics popularity, they have a classical view in textile market. This is owing to their conventional methods of production. The classical view of terry fabrics may affect their ability to compete other fabrics in local and international market. With developing novel techniques in the production of terry fabrics, innovative vision can be obtained. The innovative vision of terry fabric design can raise its ability to compete other fabrics and flourish the market of exports. This research concerns with developing a novel method in the production of terry fabrics. Designing of three- dimensional terry was developed in this research. The three- dimensional effect in the produced fabrics was obtained by the designing of 3-D artwork terry. While the produced fabrics have two dimensions, they give an illusion of three- dimensions by creating a visual deception of space or shallow depth. The produced fabrics in this research were evaluated by using a qualitative methodology. A questionnaire was employed, and data were collected and analyzed to assess whether there is a difference of opinions among participants. The results of the questionnaire showed that the three- dimensional effect was obtained in the produced fabrics, and hence, a novel vision of terry fabric design with novel aesthetical values was accomplished.
