Heimtextil opens strong again!

rtrtHosting all new products for the first time, the fair will host 160 Turkish exhibitors and around 2,500 professional Turkish visitors The world’s biggest spectrum of textile products, trends and innovations is to be seen at Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main from 8 to 11 January 2014.

Occupying 19 exhibition halls, the leading international trade fair for the sector presents the entire portfolio for textile interior design and textile furnishings for commercial projects: from products for windows, upholstery, floors, walls and sun protection to textiles for the bathroom, bed and table. Additionally, the fair is distinguished by an informative complementary program for both visitors and exhibitors. Represented strongly at this world platform every year, Turkey will be represented by 160 exhibitors this year and around 2,500 professional visitors will witness the new trends being set. With an outstanding number of registrations received months before, the International Trade Fair for Home and Contract Textiles is now ready for another success. “The great response and, in particular, the return of many prominent European manufacturers shows clearly that the textile industry continues to rely on Heimtextil as a vital source of new impulses at the beginning of the year”, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies of Messe Frankfurt. Thus, the upward trend of recent years, which has seen a steady increase in exhibitor numbers, continues.

‘New & Next’ presents fresh design ideas

The ‘New & Next’ platform for newcomers is a source of fresh design ideas. Among the companies exhibiting there will be Crishome Tex, Sirftex (both Portugal), Colorkitchen, Lanui (both Germany), Devine Marquise (Belgium), Orgamint (Latvia), and Slowcolor (USA) all of which set accents in the household textiles market with their trendy new products.

En vogue: upcycling

Manufacturers of apparel, home textiles and furnishings are giving increasing consideration to the resource-friendly use of materials, and a new product life cycle. Heimtextil also spotlights the subject of upcycling and the work of committed young designers. Thus, the ‘Young Creations Award: Upcycling’ competition calls on young designers to create original upcycling products for the interior. Following the successful première at the last fair, the next competition on the occasion of the coming Heimtextil will be held with more participants. Aachen University of Applied Sciences, Coburg University, Stuttgart Technical University and Weissensee School of Art will take part in the competition with creative works and present their models in a special exhibition in Hall 4.2.
