In 1925, Gustav Johansson, bought a circular knitting machine and placed it in the living room of his house. This was how Borgstena Textile was founded. Mr Götra Borghed, his son, developed his small family company so that by the end of the 70s it became the leading manufacturer of circular knit textiles for the Scandinavian automotive market.

Since this time, Borgstena Textile has developed to become one of the leading automotive textile suppliers on the global market but continuing to have its unique Scandinavian design as a key foundation.
