Sustainable fashion is a movement of creating change to fashion products and the fashion industry towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. It concerns more than addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion – from producers to consumers.
Welcome to Sustainable Fashion Days – an initiative to increase knowledge, share experience and build bridges.

Clothes affect all of us on this planet. We are all, to some extent, consumers regardless of the climate we live in and whether we follow the latest fashion, wear hand-me-downs, shop at large chains or buy tailor-made.
At the same time, fashion and textile represents one of the most polluting trade industries. Swedish businesses and research centres are among the main drivers for investment in more sustainable systems.
Fashion revolution – the future of textiles is an exhibition that highlights the industry’s major challenges, showcases Swedish solutions and guides you as a consumer to contribute effectively. The material is produced by the Swedish Institute with the help of researchers and other sustainable fashion experts.
