tag readies new textiles collections
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, July 26, 2011
Chicago - Trade Associates Group, Ltd. (tag) will show two new, unique, home textile collections during Home Textiles Market Week/New York Gift Week at 7W in New York City in next month.
tag commissioned Santa Fe textiles designer Bianca Dresner to create a southwest-inspired collection of tablecloths, placemats, runners, napkins and towels called "It's All About Color." The collection includes striped patterns and solid colors, as well as several waffle weave and jacquard items.
tag designers also tapped artisans in Jaipur, India, who create hand block printed textiles for a new collection called "Cedar Lake." Each pattern is hand pressed by skilled craftsmen in repeated applications using a carved wooden printing block roughly the size of a hardcover book. The collection inlcudes tablecloths, napkins, runners, towels and placemats.
The new collections and other new items will be shown in tag's 7W showroom. Fall and holiday themed collections will be shown in the Javits Center at booth 3458.
