Sense-Wear is a collection of clothes and accessories that emphasize the use of senses. Their primary purpose is to stimulate and improve awareness of our senses, while training us to better use them all. Some Sense-Wear items are designed to mute physical sensations, some to sharpen them.
Squeeze-me is a multi-purpose scarf for use in an emotional emergency. Normally worn around the head, its elastic material makes it stretchable around the body to generate a deep pressure that can calm the wearer like a warm hug.
Shake-me is a necklace for tasting, touching and shaking. Several extensions provide different textures and flavours. It recalls multi-sensory kids’ toys in that it can be used to train in discerning different tastes and different tactile experiences, (ideally with the eyes closed).

The Pump-me jacket incorporates an inflatable device to buffer the wearer against unwanted external sensations and create a contact-free personal space.

Pull-me is an aromatic scarf, effectively a portable collection of familiar scents and fragrances that is used to conjure uppleasant moments and comfortable sensations. Its several retractable extensions can be loaded with scents, specimens, or small objects.

Hold-me is a hoodie poncho that makes sounds, helping to focalize the wearer’s auditory capabilities. It is covered with musical flakes that emit sound in response to movements, while two built-in super ears help the wearer listen to these new, unexpected sounds.
