Prototype Factory

Prototype Factory is the heart of the Smart Textiles Initiative. Here, all the parts of and competences of the Initiative come together. Researchers, designers and the business community are all able to test and realize their dreams according to their own requirements. 

The full-scale laboratory is also what distinguishes and makes Smart Textiles unique in an international perspective: it provides the opportunity to take an idea all the way from vision to reality. Members of the business community come here if they don’t know how to realize their product ideas, if they lack the necessary equipment, or if they want to perform tests without interrupting regular production. The most exciting projects are selected and realized with the aim to create marketable innovations.

Here, the experimental research conducted within Smart Textiles is also tested and students from The Swedish School of Textiles are given relevant and advanced training that will prove to be very important to their future professional careers. The technical staff possesses absolute top competence and together, the fourteen staff members represent a total of 351 years’ experience in the textile trade. A world-class offer, indeed.
