    The use of region shape descriptors was investigated for categorisation of textile design images. Images were segmented using MRF pixel labelling and the shapes of regions obtained were described with generic Fourier descriptors. Each image was represented as a bag of shapes. A simple yet competitive classification scheme based on nearest neighbour class-based matching was used. Classification performance was compared to that obtained when using bags of SIFT features.
