  • Digital marketing
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Circular economy
  • Sustainable supply chain


NATIVE project promote the talent of young European designers and integrate it into companies in the fashion sector: that is the main goal of NATIVE, an ambitious European project that was launched in four countries: Sweden, Italy, Spain, and Poland. The project, led by the Borås City Council in Sweden, involves the participation of the Prato City Council in Italy, the Sztuk Pięknych Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, and the Catalan Fashion Cluster (MODACC). The project consortium are members of the European textile network ACTE (Textile Collectivities Association), which encompasses around thirty European institutions and municipalities with strong ties to the fashion industry. NATIVE is co-financed by the European Union’s “Creative Europe” programme. The NATIVE project (New Creative Trails) was created with the dual objective of developing the skills of designers working in the design industry sector and, at the same time, facilitating the integration of creative skills into SMEs in the fashion sector.

The project has selected ten young European designers via the European contest “Rebelpin”, the ACTE network fashion award that brings out creativity and provides young creative entrepreneurs and students the opportunity to connect with the market and the textile and fashion industry.
