Time Included Cloth
- story by MaterialDistrict
In today’s consumer society, textiles are considered disposable products by many. Both the quality of the products and consumers’ attitudes contribute towards this development: people are quickly bored with their clothes and don’t have the skills to treat and repair them well. The ‘Time Included Cloth’ textiles, designed by Cox Janssens, are based on the flexible, changeable properties of skin. Under the influence of daily wear, washing, surface friction and sunlight, the fabrics change their appearance, tempting users to make them last longer. Instead of diminishing them, time and wear increase the interest and value of these four different fabric designs.
The fabrics were developed in collaboration with EE Exclusives Heeze and Grafisch Atelier Daglicht Eindhoven.
