Nature is incredibly efficient in its use of resources. Biomimicry imitates inspiration from nature to solve human problems and create new technologies. This paper discussed how biological images could serve as a rich source of inspiration for creating sustainable and functional textiles with unique patterns, colors and structural properties. The Rafflesia flower, found in the Royal Belum Rainforest, is the subject matter of this study, which aims to demonstrate how biomimicry can be used in textile design patterns. Qualitative Colour Pattern Analysis (QCPA) is a method used in art and design to analyze and interpret color patterns qualitatively and subjectively. QCPA of Rafflesia provides valuable insights into this fascinating flower’s unique colors, shapes and textures, which can inspire a wide range of textile design patterns that capture its core characteristics. The study’s findings on biomimicry textile design patterns can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG 15: Life on Land. Designers can encourage the protection and conservation of biodiversity on land by drawing inspiration from natural forms and textures. Designers can assist raise conservation awareness and support efforts to protect these species in this circumstance.
