The main purpose of using a camouflage pattern is to disrupt the basic shape of an object to hide or camouflage it in a specific environment. Department of Textiles at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) collaborated in the objective research project Knowledge for Safety and Peace 2006–2010 funded by the Slovenian Ministry of Defense. The basic goal of the research was to determine the procedure for designing a new camouflage pattern of the Slovenian urban environment and to visually analyze the chosen camouflage patterns in order to meet the visual properties, camouflage, and optical requirements. The experimental part included a selection of representative parts of the urban environment, classification of digital images, composition of a camouflage pattern, industrial pattern printing on textile, and finally, image and visual analysis of a digital pattern. The final camouflage pattern corresponded to all technical, formative, visual, and military requirements.
