A pop-up retail & mentoring program for emerging Australian labels. We want to bridge the gap from 'emerging' to 'established' & see more labels succeed in building and growing sustainable & profitable businesses.


Supported by Austrade as part of the Asian Business Engagement Plan, TFIA’S Common Threads Project aims to foster a sustainable future for the Australian Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) industry by equipping businesses with the knowledge, tools and connections to create global businesses through accessing new markets in Asia, specifically Hong Kong.



The Textile & Fashion Hub is a collaboration between the Australian Government /AusIndustry, Kangan Institute and the former TFIA. The Textile & Fashion Hub is all about increasing our industry's capability. A centralised facility aimed at supporting textile & fashion SMEs and offering access to the latest machinery and technology as well as the opportunity for participants to develop skills, conduct R&D, undertake sample production and network with others in the industry.

Energy & Materials Efficiency 

This program was led by the former TFIA to help Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) Manufacturers and their supply chains to be more resilient and competitive through energy and materials efficiency. As a result, several TCF businesses cut their costs and improved their environmental performance through resource efficiency. The program has concluded, however many resources are now available to help develop knowledge and skills for companies aiming to reduce their energy and materials costs.
