Conductive woven textiles

Clemens Winkler is exploring conductive-woven cloth that he creates on a traditional textile loom. He uses conductive thread that he weaves into the pattern of the textile. This allows electronic circuitry to be integrated directly into the fabric, which results in flexible and washable electronic-ready textiles.

Since the conductive thread is thicker and a slightly different color than the base thread, Winkler explores the aesthetic of circuitry by using the difference in properties to establish a pattern. The result is a beautiful pattern that is also electronically functional.
