A fabric substrate is described for electronic textile with robust interwoven connections between the conductive yarns in it. The fabric's robustness, as a function of the electrical reliability of its conductive yarn connections, is shown to hold over large deformations.This fabric is then used to create an LED based photonic textile display. Finally, we show an example of an application that could make use of such a photonic textile system.
