The integration of smart materials into human wearable interfaces is a current topic of interest. This paper reports the integration into a polyester textile of a bi-layer (BL) film based on a polymeric matrix containing a top-layer of a microcrystalline network of an organic conductor. The resulting textiles, in addition to be conducting, exhibit the excellent strain sensing properties of BL films maintaining at the same time their flexibility.
