  1. 1. Burial textiles : Textile bits and pieces in central Sweden, AD 500–800

    Author : Anita Malmius; Birgit Arrhenius; Kerstin Lidén; Gunilla Eriksson; Eva Andersson Strand; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; textiles; boat-graves; Merovingian Period; Vendel; Valsgärde; Birka; elite burials; archaeology; Sweden; Migration Period; Archaeological Science; laborativ arkeologi;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the role and use of archaeological textiles (AT) deposited in inhumation and cremation burials in Sweden dating from 500–800 AD. The AT are studied in their burial context, including all other grave goods, emphasizing that they were as important as a source for understanding society in prehistory as they are today. READ MORE

  2. 2. Toxic Textiles : Towards Responsibility in Complex Supply Chains

    Author : Natasja Börjeson; Magnus Boström; Mikael Karlsson; Sverker Molander; Södertörns högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Responsibility; Sustainability; Supply Chain Management; Governance; Responsibilisation; CSR; Complexity; Uncertainty; Chemicals; Textiles; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Abstract : The governance of the environmental and health problems that follow in the wake of globalised trade is one of the great contemporary challenges. One of these challenges is the management of chemical pollution and associated risks, and one sector facing this challenge is the textile industry, which has complex supply chains spread across continents.

  3. 3. Radiant Textiles : Designing electromagnetic textile systems

    Author : Erin Lewis; Tincuta Heinzel; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; smart textiles; electromagnetism; textile design; design methods; artistic research; Textiles and Fashion Design ; Textil och mode konstnärlig ;

    Abstract : To regard the electromagnetic domain of conductive textiles is to unlock a realm of expressive possibilities. The underexplored area of the electromagnetic domain in con­ductive textiles implies that numerous computational and electronic textiles created thus far possess untapped capabilities. READ MORE

  4. 4. Relational textiles : surface expressions in space design

    Author : Delia Dumitrescu; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Smart textiles; Textiles and Fashion General ; Textil och mode generell ;

    Abstract : The emergence of the Smart Textiles field opens possibilities for designers to combine traditional surface fabrication techniques with advanced technology in the design process. The purpose of this work is to develop knowledge on interactive knitted textiles as materials for architecture and to do so through practice-based design research. READ MORE

  5. 5. Radiant Textiles : A framework for designing with electromagnetic phenomena

    Author : Erin Lewis; Delia Dumitrescu; Katharina Bredies; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; smart textiles; interaction design; textile interaction; textile; electronic; electromagnetism electromagnetic; design methods; artistic research; Textiles and Fashion Design ; Textil och mode konstnärlig ;

    Abstract : The design of smart, interactive, computational, and electronic textiles involves working with unknown variables that expand the tangible dimensions of textiles. Non-visual concepts such as electromagnetic fields, electrical current, computational code, and the temporal attributes of materials that exhibit dynamic qualities require that textile designers be able to perceive and manipulate domains of the textile that extend beyond its conventional forms of expression.
