This week New York was bursting with more creativity than usual with multiple trade shows across town. Our team split our time between showcasing our own art at PrintSource and scoping out the latest retail collections at NYNow and Shoppe Object. Keep reading to see a few of the trends we spotted along with some of our favorite finds!
One of the best things we saw trending at the shows was a commitment to being environmentally conscious. Products that replace single-use items, use sustainable materials, and can be reused or disposed of in an earth-friendly way were highlighted.
A popular material showcased in travel cups and food containers uses bamboo pulp from recycled chopsticks mixed with melamine.

This labor of love is proud to acknowledge our amazing team of sales consultants, textile and graphic designers, interior specialists as well as trend, color and fabric liaisons.
