The backpack project



Manufacturing a knitted backpack shows how work is carried out in the various STFI departments concerning weaving and knitting, finishing and textile testing. The interns gain an insight into the training offered by the STFI and learn about plant technology and working methods. The self-made backpack can be taken home at the end of the internship.

The duration of the internship takes five days. The internship is aimed at students in the 9th to 12th grades to help them choose a career and to generate enthusiasm for our work.
