In today’s consumer society, textiles are considered disposable products by many. Both the quality of the products and consumers’ attitudes contribute towards this development: people are quickly bored with their clothes and lose the skills to treat and repair them well. But the ‘Time Included Cloth’ textiles, designed by Cox Janssens and based on the flexible, changeable properties of skin, tempt users to make them last longer. Time and use are now embraced: instead of diminishing them, processes such as washing, surface friction and sunlight increase the interest and value of these five different fabric designs.
