Fashion, Textiles and Technology Ecosystem

The first report from the Business of Fashion, Textiles and Technology Creative R&D Partnership, Mapping the UK Fashion, Textiles and Technology Ecosystem, aims to identify opportunities for investment, research, and development (R&D), business growth, job creation and tackle skills gaps in the UK fashion, textiles, and technology (FTT) ecosystem.

Based on a survey consultation that engaged over 2,400 small, medium, and micro businesses (SMEs) and over 100 stakeholders and intermediaries, including industry specialists, trade bodies and workspace providers. This report is one of the most extensive baseline studies to date on FTT SMEs and the first comprehensive insight into the UK FTT ecosystem leading up to March 2020, pre-COVID-19.
