  • Lost out on Lilly? You’ll live

    I went to the Target launch of the Lilly Pulitzer Collection, and all I got was this Essie “Gold Nuggets” glittery nail polish. And that is fine by me. My mom, a child of the 1950s and teenager of the 1960s and a lifelong big fan all things Lilly, was eagerly awaiting the collection. Since my girls were born, my mother has been buying them Lilly dresses for special occasions, as the brand’s original line tends toward the pricier side. So when Mom heard about Target’s limited-edition and more affordable line with the designer, we made plans to ... More

  • Keeping Up With The Jones.com

    A word to the supplier community. Does your operation have an e-commerce team? Do you at least have an e-comm person? You should know that a growing number of your competitors do. The larger U.S. rug manufacturers were the first to jump on the strategy – and that was a good couple of years ago. What surprised at New York Home Fashions Market last month was the extent to which importers in other home textiles categories are restructuring internally to address online business. I wouldn’t say it’s a wave, but it’s definitely building. The most bare-bones effort ... More

  • Parallel universe

    There’s little dispute that the New York textiles market is the center of the industry and the most important twice-a-year event on the show calendar when it comes to home textiles. But having just returned from the High Point Market I have to tell you there is something going on outside of New York and if you play in this space, you need to consider a wider view. In High Point – which as everyone knows is focused around furniture – there is more textiles life than you probably think. Yes, it’s the better bedding lines that appeal to independent ... More
