My thesis presents alternative variations for updating the current rag rug by means of new technologies and materials for the year 2030. As part of the concept development phase, I conduct practical design experiments to explore methods for pattern changing on woven surfaces by using thermochromic pigment. The study does not produce a final solution for future products or services, but it provides conceptual suggestions for future textiles and forms a starting point for further research.
