Worn Jeans

CSLM autofluorescence image of magnified worn jeans

This is a confocal microscopy 3D image of denim, as an example of the amazing effect of rather low magifications of daily stuff. The image shows woven threads that are composed of individual cotton fibres. The here imaged jeans have been worn as can be concluded from the many loose cotton fibres. The loose fibres cause the fuzz of worn textile, often already induced by the manufacturer to provide a surface haze view or simply said, a worn look. Image made by Paul Nijsse, Thanks!
