Textile Gestures

By Laura Cortés-Rico, Yuleisy Rincón-Saavedra and Alexander Rozo-Torres

Soft2Soft is a work-in-progress in which we are developing a toolkit for digitally recognising textile gestures. Here, "gesture" refers to an intentional hand movement with textile materials and tools: more than a simple action, a textile gesture, in the movement, expresses a feeling, an idea, or a thought. Soft2Soft seeks to provide tools that: 1. Allow the technical recognition of actions performed with e-textiles materials with an Arduino Library. 2. Guides to accompany the design process. 3. Examples of how to craft wearable and non-wearable textile interfaces.
