The Swedish School of Textiles

At the Swedish School of Textiles the creativity of art is combined with the ingenuity of technology. The degree programmes cover the entire field of textiles, from design through manufacturing to management and technology.



The Swedish School of Textiles was founded in 1866.


The Swedish School of Textiles currently has about 900 students from all over the world in seven undergraduate programmes and seven master's programmes. The programmes focus on textiles and are divided into three areas: design, engineering, and management.


Research is of a high international standard and focuses on sustainability – how can our research contribute to a better world? Together with international research networks, we take a closer look at consumer behaviour, global markets, and how we can improve our recycling of clothing, as well as exploring new ways we can use textiles. This research is also integrated into our master's programmes. After graduation, students interested in research careers can apply for certain research programmes.
