India second largest participant at the world’s biggest home textile and furnishing fair Heimtextil in Frankfurt
January 4, 2017,
Exhibitors from India will display a variety of textile products at Heimtextil.
Also the first trade fair of the year for its sector, Heimtextil 2017 will be a trend barometer for the whole business year, spotlighting new trends and innovations in interior textiles, home furnishings, household textiles and a range of allied services. Representing India‘s strengths in these key segments, over 380 home furnishing and textile manufacturers will present their latest collections and textile innovations at the fair. Among the exhibiting companies at Frankfurt are India‘s leading players like Alps Industries, D‘Decor, Indo Count, K.G. Denim, Trident and Welspun among others.
Also representing India’s design talents is the winner of Interior Lifestyle Awards 2016 - Ms Riddhi Jain who will be showcasing 'Re-' by Medium, a collection of home textiles and wall art born from the idea of recycling, using the spontaneity of natural textures and tie & dye wastes. It is multilayered and elaborate yet deceptively simple. The textiles cannot be copied or recreated to perfection.
In the domestic arena, Indian home textile industry is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8 per cent and reach USD 5.29 billion by 2018. During the same period, curtains & upholstery and rugs & carpets will grow at CAGR of 8 per cent and 9.4 per cent respectively. Vying for this lucrative market, global players are set to come to the Indian edition of Heimtextil in June this year. Among these are leading industry giants such as D’Decor, Welspun, Raymond, Rumors, RR Decor, Shri Lakshmi Cotsyn, V& J Furnishing etc.
Heimtextil India will take place from 20 - 22 June 2017 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi alongside the world-renowned Ambiente India fair thus targetting the full spectrum of home textiles, furnishings and interior decor.
While Heimtextil India will provide the much needed impetus to the India’s home textile, decor and handicrafts sector by fostering trade and design exchange, India’s participation in Frankfurt is set to inspire confidence among global consumers.
