Underlining themes

Healthy living and working remains one of the top themes in the interior textiles sector. Furniture and decorativeNext edition of Heimtextil to be bigger better 001 fabrics also make a contribution: they are able to optimise rooms climatically and acoustically and decisively improve the feel-good factor. In this respect, the on-trend fabrics are certified organic, waterproof and/or flame-retardant. At the same time, the textiles, despite all their high-tech, have a very natural appearance. This also applies to outdoor fabrics in linen, flannel or woven looks. When it comes to soft feel-good textiles for indoors, high quality wool is exploited to the full. Additionally, denim fabrics that sometimes give the interior a casual touch are also on the rise. On the first day, a design dialogue will take place with the Heimtextil trend managers about the latest design trends in upholstery and decorative fabrics. The trend researchers will invite representatives from the upholstery industry to the lecture area in hall 4.2 to exchange views on current topics.

Europe’s strong presence

Hall 4 will host numerous big names from Europe including Gruppo Mastrotto, Manifattura Tessile Di Nole, Martinelli Ginetto, MCA, Prosetex and Sirio Tendaggi from Italy, Boelert & Moens, De Poortere Frères, Symphony Mills and Tessutica (with the Beaulieu brand) from Belgium and Albatros, Bernard Reyn, Pintail and Reynaldo from the Netherlands.

In addition, Dina Vanelli Tekstil and Güleser Tekstil from Turkey will also be present. From Germany, Gebrüder Munzert, Konrad Hornschuch, Leder Schreyeck, Textum and Vowalon Beschichtungen will be represented.

Commercial textile furnishing

Hall 4.2 will also focus on a further target group: interior, architecture, hospitality expo, architects, interior designers and hotel furnishers will find high-quality products for commercial textile furnishing, such as textiles with an acoustic function or with special abrasion-resistant properties. Crypton from the US and Anavil Europe from France will be exhibiting for the first time presenting fabrics specifically for contract furnishing. Another highlight of hall 4.2 will be a large-scale presentation by Trevira. “We will further expand the concept of the Trevira CS joint stand in 2019. This means that we will be represented at Heimtextil with a larger number of customers and thus also the highly flame-retardant Trevira CS collections. Trevira will also be presenting a trend area especially for the contract market, where visitors, in particular interior designers, designers and furnishers, can find out about innovative textiles and colour trends,” said Dr Isabell Lammel, manager communications, Trevira.
