"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."

For example, Table Manors offers a line of biodegradable placemats and napkins; Green 3 specializes in organic cotton wearables; and Sustainable Threads carries contemporary home and personal wear goods sourced through Fair Trade arrangements.

These include: Cotton of the Nile; Designer's Guild USA; Green 3; Kat Burki Home; The Koko Company; Linen Way; Mingei Japan; Papillon Linens & Dreamfit; Sin in Linen; Sivaana; Sorcha; and Sustainable Threads. Some 200 home fashion resources will be located at the Javits Center.
