"Eco-friendly is on-trend in home textiles and several market newcomers specialize in 'green' products," said Dorothy Belshaw, GLM senior vice president and NYIGF directory. "In addition, a wealth of new resources from Canada, France, Japan, India and Pakistan will provide buyers with easy access to unique merchandise from around the world."
