collection of icons

I'm developing a collection. An abstract interpretation of classic icons, buildings, materials, fabrics, and people. Something or someone that has transitioned throughout the years.
When researching the topic I google "fabric icons", and instead of iconic fabric patterns popping up like polka dots or stripes, tiny icons of facebook and twitter printed on fabric appeared on my screen. I couldn't believe just how much our vocabulary and interpretations of words has changed over the years. I never thought something so simple as "icon", would take on two completely different meanings.
