    This process allows you to take advantage of the fluid nature of a textile construction–but the forms themselves speak to a type of textile use that is very formal/heavily constructed.

    This chair has a stamped mesh back that may be of interest. It’s more conventional than the draping forms you use here, but shows one state of the art with this material.

    Maybe this kind material could be more easily accepted by the public in product categories that are not food-related?

    You could eventually try to also apply the technology to other product categories.
