Upholstery: It must be sustainable and functional
Trend towards ‘healthy’ textiles continues
When the doors to Heimtextil open in January 2019, the professional audience expects the world’s largest and most international product range of upholstery and decorative fabrics as well as upholstery and artificial leather. More than 400 international manufacturers in the “upholstery” segment show not only fabrics and leather, but innovative solutions for a healthier and more sustainable interior design.
Healthy living and working remains one of the top themes in the interior textiles sector. Furniture and decorative fabrics also make a contribution: they are able to optimise rooms climatically and acoustically and decisively improve the feel-good factor. In this respect, the on-trend fabrics are certified organic, waterproof and/or flame-retardant. At the same time, the textiles – despite all their high-tech – have a very natural appearance. This also applies to outdoor fabrics in linen, flannel or woven looks. When it comes to soft feel-good textiles for indoors, high quality wool is exploited to the full. Also on the rise are denim fabrics that sometimes give the interior a casual touch.
High-quality products for commercial textile furnishing
At the “Interior.Architecture.Hospitality Expo”, architects, interior designers and hotel furnishers will find high-quality products for commercial textile furnishing, such as textiles with an acoustic function or with special abrasion-resistant properties. Crypton from the USA and Anavil Europe from France will be exhibiting for the first time at Heimtextil and will be presenting fabrics specifically for contract furnishing. Another highlight in hall 4.2 will be a large-scale presentation by Trevira. The German manufacturer of high-tech polyester fibres and filaments will be presenting its new products alongside its well-known European partners.
Largest range of manufacturers from Asia
In halls 1.0, 1.1 and 5.1, foreign traders and wholesalers can meet Asian manufacturers with whom orders can be placed in medium and high quantities and supplied in a timely manner. In addition, the exhibitors will also be offering a varied range of products manufactured especially for retailers and bearing their own brand name. D Decor, G.M Syntex and SVG Fashion from India will be among those represented in hall 5.1.
Fibres and yarns: from natural materials to high-tech
Neben der Gemeinschaftspräsentation von Trevira präsentieren sich 2019 zahlreiche Hersteller von Fasern und Garnen auf der Heimtextil – verteilt über diverse Produktsegmente. Unter den 20 Produzenten sind Vorreiterunternehmen wie etwa Dralon aus Deutschland, Lenzing aus Österreich, Reliance aus Indien und Torcitura Lei Tsu aus Italien.
