Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles Autumn 2017 from August 23rd to 26th is the gateway to Asia’s home living market, and suppliers from around the world are eager to take part to capture the huge business potential in the region.
Among the over 1,200 exhibitors, the show will have seven national and regional pavilions as well as four domestic regional pavilions, which maximize the exposure of companies to visitors. The international pavilions, which include Belgium, India, Korea, Morocco, Pakistan, Taiwan and Turkey, will be exhibiting specialized products, while domestic pavilions composed of Haining, Shaoxing, Tongxiang and Yuhang will present even more fabric options to buyers.
The seven pavilions have been long-term participants at the fair. Indian exhibitors, for instance, are specialists in rugs, bath mats, throws, shawls, handloom carpet and handmade rugs predominantly made out of pure cotton and also blended fibers. Korean companies at the fair specialize in fashionable microfiber fabrics, polyester blankets and curtain fabrics, and will also show a full range of machine-made natural dyed sewn products. Exhibitors in the Pakistan Pavilion excel in bedding products, and will feature bedsheets produced with 100% combed and carded cotton or bamboo cotton. Pakistani companies have also developed a reversible stitching technique for bedsheet sets that helps save water and electricity. The Taiwan Pavilion will showcase eco-friendly fabrics and yarn with features including anti-odor and anti-ultraviolet property, black-out, flame retardancy, fire resistance, water repellency and more.
The presence of non-Asian pavilions including Belgium, Morocco and Turkey further reveals the enthusiasm of exhibitors toward the Asian market and their recognition of the leading position of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles in the region. The Belgian group excels in upgrading fabrics with backing, laminations and flame-retardant properties, while pavilion members will also present quality fabrics, which are widely used for decorative pillows, lampshades and other hospitality upholstery. The Morocco Pavilion will this year display uniquely designed fabrics with embroidery, geometric shapes and ornamentation. And the Turkey Pavilion joins again with quality products including towels, bedsheets, curtain fabrics, bathrobes, furnishings, curtains, interior blinds, bed valances and upholstery fabrics with original designs and made with eco-friendly technologies.
