The manufacture of textiles provides an economic boost to many countries in the world. Economies can be made or broken with the addition or loss of a textile industry, which in turn can affect the ability of people to support their families and provide them with the basic necessities of life.
The aim of this thesis is to display, and discuss, a methodology for designing
dynamic textile patterns. So far, something that mainly has been seen in different
experimental and conceptual prototypes, in artistic expressions and for commercial efforts
In terms of basic experimental research this thesis explores the turn in textile
design practice through a series of design experiments with focus on contributing
to identifying and characterizing new design variables, new design methods and
new design techniques as a foundation for dynamic textile patterns.
