Around 3000 international exhibitors will showcase their innovations at the 50th edition of Heimtextil, the international trade fair for home and contract textiles, to be held during January 7-10, 2020, in Frankfurt. The fair will see more sustainable products than ever. There will be more than 250 companies which will bring sustainably produced textiles.

The Green Directory, a separate exhibitor index focusing on the theme of sustainability that will be published by Heimtextil for the tenth time in 2020, lists these companies and their product innovations. The number of companies included in the directory has increased considerably and is higher than ever before.

Progressive, sustainably produced materials can be seen in the new Future Materials Library, part of the Trend Space. Here, visitors can explore the nature and production method of innovative materials. The focus is on recycled fabrics and cultivated –called living – textiles. The Green Village also functions as a hub for all questions relating to green issues. Seal providers and certifiers are among those introducing themselves here and offering companies their support in acting more sustainably. The United Nations will present its Sustainable Development Goals here for the first time.

Material innovations, colour trends and new designs will be highlighted in the Trend Space. Sustainability is a top priority here too: thanks to targeted selection of materials, material requirements can be reduced and the environmental footprint kept to a minimum. The area has the theme “Where I belong”, which invites visitors to take an inspiring journey of discovery. An accompanying programme of talks and guided tours will give insights into new design projects. The Trend Space has been designed by Stijlinstituut Amsterdam.

Heimtextil will present an extended range of machines for the textile industry under the product segment “Textile Technologies”. The segment will present the opportunities offered by technological change in the industry and present the latest product developments, from digital printing machines, software and corresponding accessories to machines for textile processing.

The “Decorative and Furniture Fabrics” segment will have 40 new exhibitors. Over 400 international producers will present their new collections. Another new aspect is that for the first time Heimtextil will be identifying around 250 weavers of furniture and decorative fabrics, curtains and bed linen fabrics with their own logo at stands and in the catalogue – for the better orientation of visitors. The show will have representatives from the furniture industry in the Design Dialog section.

Heimtextil has set up new business segments and sales opportunities for contract furnishers. Around 370 exhibitors will provide solutions for the contract sector aimed specifically at interior designers, architects and hospitality experts. Selected suppliers will present their wares at the Interior.Architecture.Hospitality Expo. The product offer will be supported by a new materials library, the Interior.Architecture.Hospitality Library. It will present a selection of exhibitor products with functional characteristics such as flame-retardant, sound-insulating, abrasion-resistant and water-repellent.

Curtains, decorative and furniture fabrics, drapery and curtain hardware, sun protection systems, carpets and tools for textile processing will be presented in a separate area under the title "Window and Interior Decoration". Suppliers of pillows, blankets and plaids as well as table and kitchen linen will be exhibiting under the title "Beautiful Living" – together with lifestyle-oriented accessories.

Heimtextil has kept the sleep theme prominently on the agenda under the product segment Smart Bedding. The trade fair will have 140 major players offering new insights into healthy sleep. Mattresses, bedding, sleep systems and associated technology can be viewed here, as well as duvets and pillows. There will also be some start-ups that will present smart market innovations.
