Textile Fashion Center - a place for innovation and business development

The Textile Fashion Center has a number of independent activities that are united in a textile cluster. It is a collaboration between companies, research institutes, education, organizations that work for innovation and business development. 

The Textile Fashion Center is a place that stands out from other clusters through its unique environment and concept. It combines free thinking with high-level knowledge and research so that entrepreneurship can grow with confidence and authenticity. Three parties form the basis of the business, whose collaboration is referred to as "Triple helix". They are the City of Borås, the University of Borås and the entire business community in Sjuhärad. The basic idea is that creative processes are best carried out in interaction between the municipality and society, companies and academia - a successful concept that is known all over the world.
