Textile Fashion Center

Sweden's and Borås' international centre for textiles, fashion and design.

In the old industrial area of Simonsland, right in the city centre, is the Textile Fashion Center. Once home to weaving, spinning, sewing and dyeing mills, the pace hasn't slowed down, even though it's been a long time since the noise of the factory stopped. Students, researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, businesses and visitors mix, meet and collaborate in one environment, where dreams, needs and ideas are what inspire, challenge and drive the whole centre.
