Natural fibres such as cotton, linen and silks continue to garner attention as well as luxurious materials such as camel hair, velvet and wool among others.

First time invited buyer from Brazil, Mr Charles A. Costa, Purchaser for Marisol, exceeded his expectations of the fair. “This experience has been very different and good for us.

Mr James Nam, President for NK fabric, a participant in the Korean pavilion was very happy with the high levels of professional buyers at the fair. “During these three days I have met with representatives from leading brands such as Donna Karen, H&M and Guess. Buyers here are not just looking for quality products and design but they have come for business as well. In fact, I have already made some deals on-site and even generated serious leads.”
