Home textiles will be on show at AISF
Aug '12
The forthcoming Australian International Sourcing Fair (AISF) to be held at the Sydney Exhibition Centre 20 – 22 November 2012 will feature an expanded range of home textiles including everything from bathroom, bedroom and kitchen textiles to home decorative items and handmade rugs.

Now in its third edition, the fair will be enhanced by the addition of exhibitors from some of the world’s leading home textile countries such as Egypt, Pakistan and India.

This year the Carpet Export Promotion Council of India will join the India pavilion for the first time and bring ten companies showcasing a range of floor coverings.

India is well known for its hand-knotted rugs that present an intricate design and colour pattern. Other handmade rugs which are also popular are tufted and flat woven chain stitch, dhurries and sumacs. Hand-tufted rugs are highly durable and resemble the more intricate hand knotted style, and are available in traditional, transitional and contemporary styles. This will all be on show at the fair.

Exhibiting companies include

VASON & VASONS, INDIA – established in 1957, is one of the leading manufacturer and exporters of fine quality woollen durries, handmade carpets and rugs and Indian handicrafts.

NILE TEXTILE INDUSTRIES, EGYPT – wide range of towels and bath robes including double jacquard. Bed sheets including 100% fine Egyptian cotton solid, yarn-dyed or printed.
