The premium zone of the Home Textiles Fair 'Hall of Glamour' showcased renowned brands. Hong Kong exhibitor J-Tex (H.K.) Co., Ltd. developed their own brand J-Tex, and produced licensed cartoon character bedding items. Benny Leung, director of the company, said they have participated in the fair for many years and have managed to find new buyers every time. This year they had met with new buyers from the US, UAE, India and Portugal, and some of them were interested in negotiating OEM partnership.
India is one of the leading textile exporters in the world. The fair featured quality textiles from a number of Indian textiles organisations, which received a lot of attention from buyers. Indian exhibitor Sai Exports brought new embroidery fabrics to showcase at the fair, attracting not only existing customers from Singapore and Taiwan whom they had met at the fair in the last two years, but also new buyers who are planning to place orders for 300 pieces of each design and colour for a selection of decorative cushions.
Buyers Zsuzsi Regmi and Bikky Regmi from Canada said that they had met with eight to ten potential Indian suppliers at the fair. They were particularly interested in organic fabric and trendy designs, and plan to place an initial order of about 1,000 pieces.
Growing awareness about environmental protection also means that green designs are increasingly sought after. The on-site survey conducted by HKTDC found that buyers consider eco-friendly products to have the highest growth potential this year – a sentiment echoed at the fair.
"As our products are renowned for their good quality, unique designs, fine craftsmanship and eco-friendliness, our exhibitors have received many buyer enquiries and have met with new buyers from Europe, Japan and Korea," said Abdur Rashid, deputy director of Export Promotion Bureau Bangladesh.
In addition, in response to buyer interest in small and frequent orders, the hktdc.com Small Orders zone served as a convenient platform to source in smaller lots. The zone featured more than 150 showcases with nearly 1,500 products, available in quantities between five and 1,000 pieces. During the fair period, the zone attracted around 19,000 buyers, generating around 13,000 business connections. (KD)
