    Fashion for all

    “Aspirational” – a term flash sites love to use to describe their younger, hipper and more educated and connected shoppers – is starting to encompass a broader market that is increasingly interested in better brands and up-to-the-minute design. And suppliers who are paying attention and playing the game stand to gain in 2015. At last week’s AmericasMart’s winter editions of the International Gift & Home Furnishings and Area Rugs markets, several designers and major companies had product on tap to court a larger, more style-savvy demographic with –here’s another key word – “approachable” price points on design-conscious products.

    Plus Ca Change

    January 2005 marked a turning point in the modern history of home textiles. Ten years ago, on Jan. 1, off-shore manufacturers were unshackled from the last remaining trade quotas on shipments to the U.S. market. The Heimtextil show that year was packed with U.S. suppliers and retailers racing to nail down new sources of supply. Companies arrived in Frankfurt with platoons of staff. Target Stores hired buses to haul around the 80+ buyers, designers and product developers it brought to the show. Many manufacturers who expected to rake in all that new business were fairly clueless about what ...

    See You Soon

    Attending the markets is always fun. Working from a home office, I’m always eager to get out and see “my rug people” – the many great contacts I’ve made over the years in covering category for H&TT. Admittedly, some markets are better than others. A lot of that depends on the mood at market, and how optimistic companies are feeling about their new products and their ability to sell them to buyers shopping the shows. That said, I am happy to report that this January, the markets are poised to feel like a magic carpet ride. Dropping gas ...
