Coded Textiles

with Anette Millington



A “character set” of 54 procedurally-generated shapes.

The Coded Textiles project is a meeting point between two disciplines: digital code and physical textiles. With algorithms as our anchor, we understand each discipline better through the other.

Anna Garbier was the sole coder and co-designer for this project.
