Textiles - a family affair since 1887
With a passion for quality textiles, the Svensson brand is built on a legacy that began in 1887. After four generations as a family run company, we continue to develop and manufacture textiles with outstanding design and function.

Now more than ever, our unique experience and know-how is used to improve the natural habitat of both people and plants. This makes us who we are – and extremely proud. Welcome to Svensson.

Textiles for climate and environmental solutions
We specialize in textile climate solutions, designed with insights from the contract and horticultural markets, giving plants better conditions to grow and people better places to work, travel, meet, recover and study. By sharing knowledge and being close to our customers, we are a business partner to trust.

Climate screens for greenhouse cultivation
Svensson is the pioneer and world leader in climate control and energy efficiency through textile-based solutions. The business started in the 1970s with a vision to transform and improve conditions for the professional cultivation of vegetables and flowers in greenhouses. Svensson has since revolutionized the industry with a range of innovative solutions. Today, our functional climate screens control humidity, temperature, and UV radiation according to requirements, creating excellent conditions for better and greater production in greenhouses all over the world.

Interior textiles for public spaces
Svensson dresses public rooms with aesthetical and functional textiles giving the user a creative environment. Our range includes fabrics for curtains, upholstery and solar control with a strong element of Scandinavian design. Our textiles enable a creative environment by offering good light and sound control as well as energy saving with a wide palette of solids together with patterned coordinates.

We are the fourth generation of the Ludvig Svensson family – a Swedish company led by siblings Anne and Anders Ludvigson. The passion for textiles that defines our organisation is one that embraces both design and function.

A global player with a local touch
Svensson is based on a wide range of textiles with roots in the Scandinavian fashion tradition and with over 130 years of experience in textile crafts. To be at the forefront of quality, design and function, we are constantly working on developing our process, technology and material.

Our production primarily takes place in Kinna, Sweden, and in Qingpu (Shanghai), China.
We control and own the entire manufacturing process, from the drawing board and the choice of yarn and raw materials to the desired solution and the finished product. This provides unique opportunities to influence and develop each part of the process. This is complemented by a network of good suppliers. We are therefore able to offer our customers great flexibility and unique solutions according to their specific demands and requirements – whatever the size of the project.

Svensson values
Our values define who we are. Our fundamental beliefs guide us how to act and what decisions to make. They affect how we treat each other as well as how we serve people outside our organization.
