abstract = {Cloth Modelling is contained inmanyapplications: in e-commerce but in films too. A major aspect is put on western clothes, modelling of eastern cloth is not so much considered, especially in the literature. The reason may be that eastern cloth like Indian Sari, live much more from textile structure and draping the textile around a body. In our thesis, we give an overview on geometric modelling methods and texture mapping with respect of cloth modelling and study their applicability with respect to the sari. In fact, none of the know methods is applicable without changes. Sari is an Indian garment, worn by ladies. It is a rectangular, unstitched piece of fabric, woven using cotton, silk or other threads. Sari is usually five meters long in length and around one to one and half meters in width, with designed borders. Now a days, one can buy a sari on the world wide web. But its representation on the computer screen is the main obstacle in getting the idea of its texture and design pattern. The kernel of the thesis is a generalization and adaptation of such methods, where we use a structuring of the textile shape into four major parts. Although a sari is one piece of textile, there are four parts distinguished by their patterns - two Kath, Padar and Ang -, which have to be modelled separately. By draping the textile around a body, i.e., by generating kinds of layers, the sari is worn and so a volumetric approach can model both, the structure of patterns and the draping around the body. The proposed methods are implemented in Mesa, and examples of patterns for the sari, i.e., the four main parts are modelled and visualized. Pictures of results are shown in the thesis too. },
