The paper presents a study of the possibilities of using calligraphic elements in the customization process of textiles, clothes and clothing accessories. These elements were analyzed considering the relation between the graphic characters, the color scheme, the ideographic ensemble, and the position of the element in correlation with the destination, size and type of the product.

The monograms, ideograms, slogans, and phrases presented in 2D or 3D shape are the calligraphic elements used to design different textile products (clothes, technical products and clothing accessories). These calligraphic elements can be reproduced either by weaving, knitting or by a handmade process combined with special graphic technologies: pad and screen printing, thermal printing, as well as varnishing, sublimation, and digital typing. These graphemes are put on different materials by using a special ink compatible with its properties, because it must be resistant while used, washed, rubbed or when exposed to light. The type of ink used in these processes is a thermochromic one because it behaves spectacularly under the influence of the environment conditions (its color changes according to the temperature, it creates special effects and gives off pleasant scents).
