The Home Textiles Sourcing Expo maintained a strong presence in the home textiles industry after three days of sourcing, networking and seminars. The event drew in 149 exhibitors from 8 countries, a 2 percent increase over July 2012.

The fourth edition of the Home Textiles Sourcing Expo was once again co-located with Texworld USA and the International Apparel Sourcing Show. The three co-located events drew in a total of 731 exhibitors and welcomed 5,292 attendees.

“The co-location of Home Textiles Sourcing Expo with Texworld USA in July continues to gain traction with sourcing professionals as they are able to cross source between the two shows. We expect the importance of the individual events to grow within each industry helping to draw more buyers and resources to the New York City area,” states John P. Gallagher, President & CEO of Messe Frankfurt USA.

Messe Frankfurt organizes the show in partnership with the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT TEX). Lin Yunfeng, vice chairman of CCPIT TEX says, “We are very pleased to witness the grown-up and upgrade of the Home Textiles Sourcing Expo.

"The American economy is picking up and brings new market demand to international suppliers including Chinese manufactures. There was a high percentage of repeat Chinese exhibitors. Their presentation at the show massively displayed the new image of Chinese textile and apparel industry and also demonstrates their long term committment to the US market.”

Handloom Export Promotion Council premiers large India Pavilion

The fourth edition of the Home Textiles Sourcing Expo played host to a new India Pavilion produced by the Handloom Export Promotion Council (HEPC) Government of India.

The handloom pavilion was inaugurated by the Indian Counsel General Dnyaneshwar Mulay in the presence of Development Commissioner Handloom Shri Balwinder Kumar IAS, Dr. Beela Rajesh IAS, Executive Director of HEPC, Dr. Devyani Khobragade Deputy Counsul General and Dennis Smith, Vice President of Sales for Messe Frankfurt USA. The pavilion consisted of 10 companies showcasing a wide range of products: table linens, kitchen linens, curtains, cushion covers, home textile fabrics, made ups, rugs, bathmats, carpets and cotton durries.

The Indian Silk Export Promotion Council also participated in Texworld USA with 6 participants marketing silk fabrics and embroidery. The Handloom Pavilion showcased exquisite fabrics that are entirely hand-woven, eco-friendly and made from natural fibres.

A popular destination on the show floor was once again the trend forum featuring trends from Heimtextil 2013. The display, produced by Mark Woodman with Global Color Research, who is also on the board for the Heimtextil trend, highlighted the four stories out of the ‘being’ trend book: the geologist, the historian, the eccentric, and the inventor.
