Conceptual Map

Transdermal tissues

Develop a transdermal tissue, generating a textile or wearable that is itself medicinal when in contact with the skin. Deliver active ingredients in a controlled manner to the body of the person wearing the clothing.

The ingredient delivery mechanism works similar to a transdermal patch and is activated by the temperature and moisture of the skin.

Transdermal patches are devices used to deliver medications. They are fixed to the skin by means of an adhesive and release a drug continuously, so that it is absorbed by the skin. That is, that it crosses the successive layers of skin, until it reaches the blood.

Transdermal patches are made up of four parts:

  • A waterproof covering sheet.

  • A matrix or reservoir of the active principle, where the drug is housed.

  • An adhesive.

  • A plastic sheet that is removed before applying the patch.


Seasonal mushrooms. Not all medicinal mushrooms grow year-round. It would be interesting to investigate what are the necessary conditions for each mushroom to grow.


From what I have been able to investigate, most medicinal mushrooms are dyers.
