Patterns are often Designed in Repeat to Maintain A Balanced Design Even When Fabric is Made into Yardage

 On May 9, 2013 eight people were killed when a fire broke out at a textile factory in an eleven-story building in the Mirpur industrial district owned by Tung Hai Group, a large garment exporter.

The president of the politically powerful textile industry lobby group, the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), told Reuters that "the Bangladeshi managing director of the company and a senior police officer were among the dead."As of June 2014, efforts to improve safety were being coordinated under "an unprecedented comprehensive "Accord on Fire and Building Safety" ...
Around 180 companies - mostly from Europe - international and local trade unions, Bangladeshi employers, exporters and government are part of this agreement." 
In addition, a "Bangladesh Alliance for Worker Safety - an association of 26 American companies including CAP and Wal-Mart" seeks to address these issues from an entrepreneurial standpoint, without participation of trade unions.
Together the two groups "are responsible for inspecting around 2,100 factories over a period of five years."
As of July 2014, progress had been made in inspecting about 600 factories.
A spokesman stated that "Ten factories have been submitted to the Government Established Review Panel and most have been either closed completely or partially."
Dr. Deborah Thom, professor at Cambridge University, helps detail out a time where fiber art took a feminist turn during the Suffrage Movement where women were making embroidered banners for their protests.
Today, most professional textile designers use some form of computer-aided embroidery digitizing design software created expressly for this purpose. 
Some of the latest advances in textile printing have been in the area of digital printing.
The process is similar to the computer controlled paper printers used for office applications. In addition, heat-transfer printing is another popular printing method to be used in the textile design.
Repeat size is the distance directly across or down from any motif in a digitizing design to the next place that same motif occurs.
The size of the repeat is determined by the production method.
For example, printed repeat patterns must fit within particular screen sizes while woven repeat patterns must fit within certain loom sizes.
There are several different types of layouts for repeated patterns.
Some of the most common repeats are straight and half drop.
Often, the same design is produced in many different colored versions, which are called colorways.
Once a pattern is complete, the design process shifts to choosing the proper fabrics to get the design printed on or woven into the fabric.
