GraftCraft AB has been situated in the Borås Incubator since the spring of 2013, and will now follow the incubator to their new facilities in the newly constructed Textile Fashion Centre in Borås.
– This new location offers a wide network both within the textile technology sphere as well as within the start-up world, since the incubator is located in an open office environment with many shared facilities, says co-founder Torbjörn Lundh.
The Textile Fashion Centre is located adjacent to Borås University, opening up for more academic collaborations and cross-technology input. The Center is created in the old factory facilities of SKS (Svenskt Konstsilke AB), a company with roots in Borås and expertise in high-performance yarn. Hence, the building has textile history from the early 1900s, which now is mixed with innovation and creative thinking.
GraftCraft is situated at the incubator Inkubatorn i Borås, alongside with other local startups from the Borås region. The incubator also has a national-wide fashion incubator branch, supporting tailors and textile entrepreneurs from all of Sweden. The Textile Fashion Center also houses the Textile University of Borås, numerous companies and consultancy firms as well as parts of the Swedsish innovation system.
