Project Jacquard


The project is possible thanks to new conductive yarns. Jacquard yarn structures combine thin, metallic alloys with natural and synthetic yarns like cotton, polyester, or silk, making the yarn strong enough to be woven on any industrial loom. Because of this yarn, sensitive areas can be woven at precise locations, anywhere on the textile.

In addition, sensor grids can be woven throughout the textile, creating large, interactive surfaces. Google and Levi’s have developed innovative techniques to attach the conductive yarns to connectors and tiny circuits, no larger than the button on a jacket.
