Solar Fabric Cells Inside Woven Textiles
Solar Cells Inside Woven Textiles is a research and artistic exploration of future sun-powered smart textiles.
Aalto University Department of Design. The collection of handwoven fabrics showcases aesthetic and functional potential of embedding electronics into the multilayered structure of cloth.
During the process, weaving techniques, photovoltaics technology, and surface design methods were mixed to create prototypes of functional textile composites. Each of the samples demonstrates a unique idea that could be used in a range of electronic textiles.
