The cloths have been exposed to different processes in order to be marked by the environment and by time. They have been left outside, hanging in a salty, coastal environment for up to 6 months or dunked into the sea so that the sewn wire eyelets begin to break down and mark the cloth. Others have been soaked in salt water that I have made up – this is a much stronger solution than seawater which only contains 3.5% salt. When the salt water evaporates from the cloth it leaves a crusted, shining residue.
