Systems that inherently exhibit topological superconductivity are rare in nature and the highly coveted
Majorana quasiparticles are therefore mainly pursued in engineered hybrid devices. In this talk, I
propose to harness the possible microscopic coexistence of superconductivity and textured magnetic
order as an alternative pathway to craft topological superconductors. Indeed, as I will show, layered
multiband spin-singlet superconductors coexisting with magnetic helix, whirl or skyrmion crystals,
give rise to a multitude of topological phases and a rich variety of Majorana boundary modes.
