Heimtex Happenings…Diversity among print..pattern & product!

I have been attending Hemtex (Heimtexil) the largest international textile show in Frankfurt Germany for the past 20 years. Each year the show seems to get smaller in comparison to the last both in exhibitors as well as attendees.

Most people would assume less exhibitors as well as less attendees would be a negative thing, but its actually the opposite because the people who are attending are serious buyers looking for newness in an industry that has become very homogenous over the years….but not this year!

Posting some Heimtex images for those who did not attend to get an overview of what I did see over the 4 days at the show…

Looks like Design Works International is “truly international” with two design shows  3,864 miles apart this week!

We are premiering  all our design collections in one week in two major cities, New York and Frankfurt.

Our HOME collection at Heimtex focuses on soft good products like upholstery, wallpaper, fabric and tabletop…while at PrintSource NY, our collections focus on paper goods, fashion, accessories and fabric with a special seasonal collection for most holidays!

If you missed us at either shows this week…stop by our NYC loft at 45 West 36th next week to preview our line of updated prints and patterns…looking for digital printed fabric, we have that as well from our sister company First2print!

Trend Shopping in Shanghai 

Color, Chaos & Creativity

Someone has to do it….so why not me?

Often I am asked why I love what I do everyday for a living and as the old saying goes…”Find a job you love and you”ll never work a day in your life”….25 years in my design studio in NYC with some of the most talented and dedicated designers, amazing clients and friends, my husband Neil as my business and life partner and two kids that are well on their way to creating their own path in life…sounds easy right…nope lots of hard work, dedication, long days and nights in the studio, PTA meetings and more!
