The Uludag Textile Exporters Association (UTIB) of Turkey organized for the fourth consecutive time the Turkish Home Textile Design competition, where more than 530 aspiring interior designing professionals and students participated and showcased their innovative home textiles products.

According to a statement issued by UTIB, president of the association Ibrahim Burkay, said while presenting the awards that the competition aims at providing a platform for students and young professionals to exhibit their products and showcase their talent.

Organized with the support of Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM) and the Turkish Ministry of Economy, the event was aimed at bringing together professionals from the home textile sector of Turkey, and providing them with the motivation to create innovative products that can compete in international markets and generate more foreign exchange for the country.

During the presentation of awards to the winners, TIM president Mehmet Buyukeksi said that the Turkish textile and clothing industry has set the export target of US$ 30 billion for 2014, and competitions like these encourage innovation which helps in creating products that can create an image in the global market and help reaching the export target.

Minister of Economy Nihat Zeybekci said Turkey is beaming with young and talented professionals in every sector, and textile is an industry which can provide employment to several young students in the country.

Events such as the home textile design competition are an open invitation that provides young designers an opportunity to explore new possibilities and create wonderful products, he added.

The award for the most innovative home textile product was presented to Turkish designer Arukasl who created a light duvet with a pillow designed in a way that can play soothing music. The designer explained that the idea behind creating such a pillow was to help users to get rid of the fear of dark during the night.

Around 530 applicants showcased various designs in different home textile products during the competition, including bathroom textiles, bed linen, sofa, curtains and more.
