Focus Areas

Sustainable Textile

We prioritize sustainable development and work actively to integrate environmental work into all parts of our business. For us, aspects such as resource efficiency, longevity, recycling, quality and function is important words that we lead to action. We are convinced that the solution for a sustainable textile future lies in diversity.

Health and Medicine

We invest in research and development in areas where materials that can measure and monitor patients' health conditions are tested. Great benefits can be seen for both the patient and the health care system when the patient is given the opportunity to take greater responsibility for their own treatment. The connections to the sports area are strong as one sees clear links between a healthy sports life and reduced medical need.

Architecture and Interior

Within the focus area Architecture and Interior, Smart Textiles highlights the design and development of the border area between textile, architecture and interior design. Within the framework of the Science Park Borås and the platform Cirkular Hub, Smart Textiles is involved in and works for circular economy regarding textiles, fashion and interior.
