LUMINOUS FIBERS is a project that challenges the conventional textile paradigm by integrating wearable technology to elevate individual experiences.

This collection of soft accessories offers versatility in wear, allowing for various styles and forms with its illuminations of embedded LEDs.

Through the lens of interactive wearables, Luminous Fibers reimagines the potential of apparel and smart textiles, transcending the mundane to infuse occasions with delight and intrigue.

Project Overview

This project adopts a material-based exploration, merging traditional smocking techniques with the understanding of electronics. The initial focus lies in discovering ways to integrate these two components.

Through the exploration of textile manipulation and wearable LEDs, Luminous Fibers discovers and creates a collection of interactive wearables.

Project Goals

This project aims to introduce the beauty of embedded sewable lights and conductive threads, revealing how these elements are intertwined.

It aims to explore the intersection between two different elements- the gentle touch of textiles and the realm of wearable technology.

Luminous Fibers are versatile textile accessories that are easy to put on and can be styled effortlessly, even without LEDs.

Their rechargeable battery can be reattached at any time and washed easily, making the experience even more convenient.
