Coloreel has bagged the prestigious innovation award SKAPA for its unique machine for digital thread colouring that will revolutionise the textile industry. This places Coloreel as one of the most innovative companies in the world, since Sweden is ranked as the second most innovative country in the world, according to 2018 Bloomberg Innovation Index.

Joakim Staberg, founder of Coloreel, received this year’s award of 500000 SEK from SKAPA’s chairman Minoo Akhtarzand and one of Sweden’s most well-known innovator, Håkan Lans. The award was handed out at the SKAPA innovation gala, which was held in Stockholm on November 8, 2018. The SKAPA award is established in memory of the famous inventor Alfred Nobel, Coloreel said.

“This year’s prize winner shows great innovation spirit and that the Swedish textile industry is at the forefront. Coloreel, as the innovation is called, revolutionises the technological possibilities for industrial embroidery. The innovation shortens production times and allows for embroidery in the precise colours you want. Also, for the first time, it is now possible to produce gradients in the embroidery,” Minoo Akhtarzand, chairman for the foundation SKAPA said.

Coloreel has put in more than nine years of hard work and dedication in developing their now heavily patented technology. Despite facing hard circumstances and overcoming the complexity of this technology, Coloreel has transformed their unique idea into a unique product.

“It feels inspiring that we can now call ourselves Swedish champions of innovation after so many years of hard work. It is strong proof that the whole Coloreel team has accomplished something beyond the ordinary. We are now in the middle of a strong expansion and are fully focused on bringing our first thread colouring product to the market,” Joakim Staberg said. (GK)
