A special heat reactive yarn visualizes this scarf pattern, a personal fingerprint or iris code. It will change its colour in response to heat, resulting in a modification of the identity (code). The abaca, used for the traditional summer kimono, creates a transparent and airy texture yet retains the volume look due to its slightly stiff properties.
