The first national meeting of textile and clothing professors took place in Madison, Wisconsin in June 1959. With a mission to advance excellence in education, scholarship and innovation, and their global applications, the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) is a professional and educational association of scholars, educators, and students in the textile, apparel, and merchandising disciplines in higher education.

The purpose of this design is twofold. First, the designer wanted to create a woven fabric surface inspired by the floral pattern created when eight tangentially connected circles are symmetrically intersected. Second, the designer wanted to create an engineered digital textile print with a hand weaving technique. Several other designs have been created by the designer using hand weaving techniques previously, but this is the first time that the designer developed engineered garment patterns with a digitally textile pattern designed from a software rendered pre-visualization.
