Smart textiles: Innovation in the textile industry
The textile industry needs to innovate for the sake of the industry and its people, the healthcare sector and the environment.
It can create clothes that monitor health conditions and measure body movements, as well as technologies that recycle/reuse textile fibres.
Since its creation in 2006, Smart Textiles has developed over 500 research/business projects. Visit its Showroom to find out about new materials/prototypes/products, or its Technology Lab at the University of Borås, where technological advances are achieved thanks to inter-disciplinary cooperation.
The circular project Re:textile has launched the F/ACT Movement, focusing on new sustainable choices without sacrificing the passion for clothing and fashion.
