More about Textile Challenge

Textile Challenge is built of seminars and workshops and based upon seven themes; Product and design, brand och transparency, material and chemistry, production, retailers and distribution, use/consumption and finally recycling.

Each ”Textile Challenge project” focuses on one specific theme connected to parts of the textile value chain and is initiated by a seminar, followed by a workshop. Challenges for the textile and fashion industry are discussed in order to reach the global targets in Agenda 2030.

During the workshop a challenge is presented connected to the specific theme and the goal is that it will result in start-ups of a number of sub-projects.


Desired effect

Start-up of a number of sub-projects, where at least three companies are taking part, connected to the challenge intended to contribute to a more sustainable textile and fashion industry.

The completed projects should, among other things, show good examples of sustainable circular business models that create business benefits.
