The Hult Prize Summits (regional competitions and semi-finals) will be held around the world in June. The theme of this year’s Hult Prize is “Redesigning Fashion.”


Three teams composed of students from Hokkaido University will also challenge the Summit. We appreciate your support.


The teams
  • TIKBAL (Taiwan Summit)
    They are the winners of the on-campus competition held on November 26, 2022. Focusing on the traditional handicrafts of Latin American indigenous peoples, TIKBAL aims to provide opportunities for success in the handicraft industry through ethical and transparent operations by reclaiming fabrics, training artisans, and selling products directly.

  • Tsugitsugi (Taiwan Summit)
    They are the runner-up team in the 2022 competition. They want to create a company that uses discarded clothing and revives it into new clothes. The concept is not to simply remake clothing, but to put a message, enthusiasm, and love into the redesign of clothing, for example, to create a world where people are not distinguished by disability or by gender.

  • E-KaOri (Online Summit)
    This team has won a chance to compete in an online competition. They aim to reduce fashion waste by upcycling used clothing into bags using methods inspired by traditional Indian arts such as Madhubani and Warli.
