CTF stands for Challenge the Fabric and is initiated by Ekman & Co in partnership with the Swedish Fashion Council and contributing partners. CTF aims at opening the dialogue about viscose as an alternative to natural and synthetic fibers, and in the long run contributing to a more sustainable fabric process for viscose. The exploration of alternatives to fill the fiber gap is urgently needed and viscose might have the potential to be a solution.

In 2018 the Challenge the Fabric (CTF) Award was launched at the London Fashion Week.

This year we look forward to the CTF Conference 2021 in Paris.
