Material news in the Textile Material Library 

The Textile Material Library is the home of all kinds of textile materials and product samples. This makes it a natural resource and sounding board for problems and ideas related to product development, all the way from initial ideas to complete textile applications and products.

The library is an interface and market window between academia, research and the business community and also a place where people with different kinds of expertise meet and exchange thoughts and ideas – not least the partners of the Smart Textiles Initiative.

The Textile Material Library is situated at Galleriet on floor 2 at the Swedish School of Textiles, 17 Bryggaregatan.
