As a designer, I have a few odd obsessions. One of them is observing how one material attaches to another material. I even have a pinterest board dedicated to this.

So how do materials attach to other materials?

They can friction fit (or just fit) into other things. They can be woven. They can be sewn or wrapped. They can be snapped. They can be glued. They can be nailed or riveted together. Gravity can be used to fit one thing into another thing as with the objects above. What else?
