Tactility is a textile collection that has therapeutic benefits for individuals affected by ADHD. Touch is a powerful sense, tactile stimulation increases attention span and the capability to remember information. Two types of sensory inputs have influenced this project: Energizing Input and Calming Input. Use of an all-white colour palette gives a disconnection from visual elements, and allows the textural surface to be more tactilely engaging.
I am a textile designer with experience utilising a range of textile media and processes. I push the boundaries of traditional textile techniques by combining new and traditional materials to achieve innovative textures and surfaces. Including embroidery, knit, and silicone.
