Reboot Fashion

On May 25, 2024, the Textile Museum of Sweden opens a new permanent exhibition: Reboot Fashion. This exhibition explores the path towards a circular textile future through innovative production methods, while also inviting individuals to engage and influence change.

The fashion industry needs a reboot. Clothing and fashion are fun, creative, and a way to communicate. At the same time, the global textile and fashion industry is a threat to people, the environment, and the climate. Low prices and persuasive advertising lead to overflowing wardrobes. The textile industry consumes significant amounts of natural resources, creates pollution, and in many countries, working conditions are poor. It is a problem without easy solutions. A fundamental change is needed from both companies and consumers.

The Reboot Fashion exhibition presents examples of innovative thinking from companies and researchers within the industry, along with practical tips on how to care for your wardrobe to make it more sustainable. The exhibition also presents examples from history, underscoring the sustainable thinking that was once ingrained in society.

The new permanent exhibition will be a forward-looking complement to the two existing permanent exhibitions, Textile Power and Clothes & Couture, which chronicle the textile industry's impact on Borås's development and the evolution of fashion in the 20th century.

Reboot Fashion provides insight into the climate and environmental impact of fashion, but also shows that everyone can do something to improve the situation.
