Materials Matter Video: Process

The ASID Material ConneXion library, installed in the association’s headquarters offices in Washington, D.C., showcases the impact of design materials on the human experience. Each video in the Materials Matters Series reviews a different innovative and healthy material in ASID’s library. 

In this edition of Materials Matter, ASID Government and Public Affairs Associate Tracy Leatherberry takes a look at a material from the Process category. Swarovski crystals are glued to the surface of the leather on top of reinforcement stitching which adds to the surface roughness underneath individuals crystal to improve adhesion and make for more durable embellishments.
