In March 2011, I designed my first Square Fabric. In the same period, Stop4Stuff designed his Square Maille - Flat N sampler and both models had a similar design: something flat made of square basic shapes.

So last December, when I was contacted by a journalist about this Square Fabric, I could not prevent myself from revisiting this design.

First I decided to make a new version with smaller links and smaller clearances. The previous version had a wire of 2mm with a clearance of 1mm. This time, the wire is 1.5mm and the clearance 0.5mm.
The result is the Square Fabric v2.

I also ask Stop4Stuff the permission to design a new fabric with a link directly inspired from his own design but with a more round feeling (without going into particulars, I work with cylinders intersections).
The result is the Square Fabric v3.

I really like how those fabrics react when you touch them.
The next step would be to take a scanned part of body, say a hand, transform it into a model made of squares and then replace each square by such a square link, in order to make a glove.

So many things to design, so little time...
