Zhang Ziwei is a textile designer with an engineering background, which allows her to think about design from a technical perspective and create fabrics with innovative functions and behaviours.
She prefers to make fabrics that can interact with people. This interaction does not imply artificial intelligence and has nothing to do with electronics. At a time when wearable devices are not yet widely available, Ziwei wants to use only the properties of yarn and knitted structures to change the appearance of the fabric by simply stretching, folding, pulling or disassembling and reassembling it to achieve the effect of human interaction with the fabric.
Ziwei hopes to create more interactive fabrics in the future, so that clothing, accessories and home textiles can be used like toys to keep people entertained at all times.
