This project embraces the beauty of aging. It explores the concept of intelligent skin from developing idiosyncratic material characteristics. Through the fusion of two everyday materials, a new fabric was created that amplifies wrinkles, celebrating the traces of wearing history instead of the constant refreshing to look “new”. This textile freezes forces that are applied to the fabric while being (almost) infinitely malleable. Every use, every interaction and movement transcribes a unique crease, creating an infinitely sculptable piece of garment as a custody of  memory.
