Guilin solar-power dress
Guilin solar-power dress
Power your electronics with the attachable bow on this beautiful dress, featuring a brush-and-ink-style painting of the scenic Li River in Guilin - one of the most beautiful places on the planet. A boat across the Li river through the mountains brings you into a painting. Designer KtY captured the picturesque nature with her paint brushes when she visited.

Wear it in two ways with a detachable bow. The lotus solar panels can charge a phone battery by ~30% within 5 hours, and this number can increase with a longer exposure, including indoor lighting. Typically, we don't use the solar panels to charge when the device is out of battery, but to keep the battery charged on-the-go. The flexible, wearable solar panels are made by ASCA.

Can I wash tech-fashion?
Short answer: yes. The products are designed with washing in consideration. Follow the instructions, just like how you'd do so for cleaning other types of clothing.
The electronic components are made either removable or concealed, or the clothes itself only requires spot washing.
Think about normal clothes you are used to. They also require different kinds of washing - machine wash, hot/cold, hand wash, spot wash, dry wash, no need to wash, etc. Tech wearables do not add more complexity if user experience is already considered in the products. Think about how you'd care for a leather jacket or wool.
Even if the electronics are waterproof, the batteries should be removed. There may be more mechanical damages by the washing machine than water damage if instructions are not followed.
