    The Clawback Redemption

    Leave it to the financial business to come up with new ways to describe old situations. The latest one I’ve heard is the”clawback.” Maybe you were familiar with it, but this one really hadn’t been on my radar until recently. Clawbacks grew out of the financial meltdown of 2007-2008 and they were basically provisions that if Wall Street types had made a boatload of money on deals that eventually went bad they were required to give back – have clawed back – some of those earnings. I’m still not exactly sure who was in charge of determining the ...

While typically quieter than the event in January, this month’s show provided another example of the increasing optimism about the economy and for retail going forward. And for me, market was a welcome infusion of inspiration. While there will always be a place for neutrals anywhere and everywhere in home textiles, seeing such daringness with color and pattern again was like a breath of fresh air. I was eager to get back to my computer to write ...

    High Drama at the Low End

    Don’t look now but the bottom end of the home textiles market is in play. With the demise of Anna’s Linens, consolidation in the dollar store channel, the continued expansion of Aldi and the entry of H&M and Zara into the home business we are in the midst of some serious upheaval down on the low end of the retail hierarchy. And while the prices are low and the margins slim, don’t ever forget the fact that this is a huge business up for grabs. If we accept the premise that the marketplace is becoming truly ...
