This year’s strong participation confirms the predictions of industry experts regarding a moderate rebound in the U.S. home textile market to be realized over the next few years, stated Dennis Smith, President, Messe Frankfurt North America. Our diverse participation from many sourcing countries confirmed the demand for home fabrics and soft goods that can be sourced at the only home textile sourcing show on the East Coast.

Once again, Home Textiles Sourcing Expo was co-located with Texworld USA and the International Apparel Sourcing Show featuring 759 exhibitors providing buyers access to the full spectrum of sourcing options for apparel fabrics, garment manufacturing and finished soft goods for the home.
