The Autumn edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles will be held from August 27 to 29. This is China’s leading home textiles fair, where one can find the latest textile and accessory products. It will feature over 1,400 exhibitors from more than 30 countries.
The China Home Textile Trend Forum will present four themes for the 2015 trends. The International Lifestyle Trend Forum is led by an international committee of trendsetters and designers to understand the cultural differences in the Chinese market. The China Intangible Cultural Heritage of Home Textile and Handicraft display area will also illustrate to buyers the popularity of traditional products in the domestic market.
New to this year’s fair is the Home Decoration Trend Area. This is a practical display area which illustrates international trend themes in detail using the complete range of home textile products. Expanding on this concept, and targeted towards interior and soft decoration designers, is the Interior Design and Soft Decoration Forum. A number of seminars will also take place related to the Chinese market under the topics of design and trends and market information.
As the number of high wealth consumers in China continues to grow, home textile suppliers are launching custom-made product lines. Textile products are being thought of as fashion elements in the home. Curtains, for example, now feature 3D embroidery, organza and burnout fabrics.
