A Registered Design is a legal right.

It protects the overall visual appearance of a product or a part of a product in the country or countries in which you register it.

A Design is legally defined as being "the appearance of the whole or part of a product resulting from the features of, in particular, the lines, contours, colours, shape, texture or materials of the product or ornamentation."

This means that protection is given to the way a product looks. Whilst texture and materials may influence the way a product looks, protection does not extend to the feel of a texture or what the product is made of.
