Wave Stitcher is an e-textile exploration using conductive yarn and LEDs to recreate the feeling of a visit to the cliffs of Big Sur, California.
Wave Stitcher is an e-textile exploration. Inspired by our Intro to Wearables class lectures on Construction Methods, Environment & Slow fashion, I wanted to explore creating textiles that reflect moments in nature that I feel connected to. Maybe one way to increase the longevity of our garments' life cycle is to embed them with a connection of a place we love to be reminded of. In this case I use the ocean/sky color gradation of a misty day out at Big Sur, California. The conductive yarn rows connect when the bottom button is connected, turning on a row of LEDs in the back that mirror the scarf's wave stitch.
