Luminous Fabric – light up your life


So, d’ya wanna add a bit of spice to your otherwise boring wardrobe? Need something to give extra sparkle to your vehicle upholstery? Then maybe you need some Luminous Fabric, citizen. We featured this material waaaay back in 2002, but now they’ve got some fancy new colours, and it’s hand washable in soapy water. Hmm…where’s that knitted shawl pattern I was keeping for a rainy day…?

 This technology allows to wave plastic optical fibers alongside synthetic fibers, forming a luminous fabric. This innovation can be used in many fields: fashion and clothing (bags, accessories, clothes), decoration (pillows, tablecloths, curtains, …), furnitures, etc… Unlike standard optical fibers, the fiber optic fabric emits light along the full lenght of the fibers. The luminous effect is simply stunning, dazzling, and wonderfully original. [bag, light off] Depending on the type of electronic module used with the fabric, several colors are possible (the most common and the most luminous being blue, red, green, yellow and white).
