West Sweden region boasts a long history within textile production.

A key textile centre is the Borås region. Large numbers of modern companies in the region draw inspiration from generations of expertise in the field, spanning everything from fibre manufacturing, tanned leather products for the furniture and automotive industries, workwear and protective clothing, fashion companies, energy weave companies, technical textiles and much more.

Gothenburg is home to some of Sweden’s fashion companies, including Lindex, KappAhl and Nudie. 

Near Borås there is advanced research in Smart Textiles, a textile college and extensive industry experience as Sweden's mail order centre – which is now a hub for Sweden's largest online stores for fashion and footwear.

The region’s objective is to reinforce its status as a market leader in textiles, fashion and design in Scandinavia.
