This is a project carried out together with Elobina and Miljöbron, which resulted in a report about the state of the Textile Industry written by the students Federica Bertolani & Danielle Arzaga from the University of Lund. We hope that you have time to read the report, since there is a lot of interesting information. I have collected some of the highlights to this post, but please read the whole report – it is really worth your time. We have included the whole report as well as a shorter ppt- version.
