Ethnomathematics is the study of mathematical ideas in cultural context. This study focused on the Nanjing Yun Jin, whereby it related to its design of the cloth pattern and the meaning behind of the pattern itself. The general idea of this study is to explain the pattern through geometry and application of computer software to show the pattern and design of the Yun Jin. Yun Jin is a traditional weaving technique in cloth making in China. The technique is handed down generation by generation through oral teaching and only the successor who will inherit the skill of this traditional cloth making. The main objective of the study is to apply the concept of ethnomathematics in Yun Jin. Also, this study determines the geometry movements and design in Yun Jin development. The scope of this study is the Yun Jin designs which are collected from Chinese community, reference books, product booklet and website. The geometric symmetry, transformational geometry, tessellations, and fractals were used to identify and create patterns. Transformational geometry includes reflection, rotation, and translation. The application of computer software such as Adobe Illustrator, ACD See Photo Manager, Paint, Microsoft Word and other programs, illustrated the geometry movement of Yun Jin, whereby these computer graphic design applications are the media to understanding the ideas of mathematics in Yun Jin pattern design. The results showed that the mathematical applications exists in Yun Jin pattern design.
