The Textile Design Foundation (FUNDIT) was created in 1989 with the aim of promoting a culture of design and providing the necessary educational and research-related resources to do so. That same year, FUNDIT created the Higher School of Design (ESDi). ESDi began its educational activity by offering a course in textile design that was adapted to the needs of the Spanish textile industry. email@example.com
Three years after the creating ESDi, FUNDIT signed an association agreement with Ramon Llull University (URL), Spain's first private university. On 9 January 2009, the Catalan government recognised ESDi's affiliation with the URL.
