The aim was to imitate the look of cheap, non-textile materials, which normally are of totally functional and non-aesthetic origin. Bubble wrap, rescue blankets and acoustic foam were focused because their original qualities can be conceptionally transferred into fashion: packaging materials wrap objects, rescue blankets protect people, acoustic foam isolates - clothes are encasing, protecting and warming bodies.
After many material tests metallic-jersey fabric, thermoformed pvc and casted polyurethane-rubber were chosen.

The structure of acoustic foam transferred into a polyurethane rubber molding makes a nice footprint.
