CHLOE – A MODERN HIGH AND LOW VELVET 

This high and low velvet delights; not only because of it extraordinary pattern but also by its modern colour range and enormeous durability. The special look arises from the irregularly blurred shapes. Its matt silky sheen makes the colours shine brightly. Powdery sorbet colours such as Blushed Rosé, Salbei and Pistacio harmonise well with deep shades such as Jade, Royal Blue and Aubergine. Finely graded natural tones complement the colour range. All in all there are 18 colours available. Thanks to the branded yarn Trevira CS Chloe is extremely durable with 200.000 martindale.

‘More is more’ is finally out in the home textiles industry”

For most of its existence, the home textiles business—sheets, comforters, towels, et cetera—has been all about more. That took the form of everything from ever-higher thread counts (defying any known weaving technology) to bed-in-a-bag put-ups that approached the triple digits in their number of pieces, and towels that outweighed some bantam-weight boxers. More was better.

But recently, as evidenced by the wares on display at September’s New York Home Fashions Market, the industry has started to go in the opposite direction. After decades of excess, the business is finally discovering that less is, in fact, often more.

The twice-yearly trade show, held mostly in closed showrooms along Manhattan’s lower Fifth Avenue, is where big-box stores like Walmart, Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond and their retail brethren start buying next season’s goods. While shows in traditional market centers in Atlanta, High Point, Dallas and Las Vegas all feature higher-end soft home resources and bedding products, it is in New York where the bulk of the business in this $25 billion market segment is done.

Over the past few seasons, this sector has been in transition—working to bring to market products that appeal to the new generation of shoppers more concerned with attributes like sustainability, transparency and naturally sourced materials. It’s been an ongoing evolution, but the fall show made it apparent that the industry is heavily drinking this new Kool-Aid. In market introductions from suppliers large and small, several themes prevailed, reflecting these new sensibilities in core bed and bath products.

Sustainability and circularity: Bed and bath products have always gotten a bad rap for using too many natural resources in their production—water and land primarily—but the industry is making a concerted effort to move to a more sustainable model that emphasizes both recycled final products and individual components. Circularity, based on renewable resources as well as recycling, was a buzzword heard often in many showrooms, even if not everyone clearly understood what it meant.

Traceability: With the vast majority of home textiles products—at least 90 percent by most estimates—coming from the Asian production powerhouses of China, India and Pakistan, understanding the manufacturing chain for home textiles has often been a challenge. Using DNA marking, RFID tagging and other new technologies, vendors are now able to trace the raw materials in their products back to the growing fields, giving retailers and consumers alike a look into the entire production process.

Certification: Because there are no real regulatory or safety standards governing most soft home products, it’s always been a free-for-all on certifying products. Now, some international third-party organizations like Oeko-Tex and Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS) are gaining traction, often at the urging of retailers who want to offer a point of differentiation for their products. None of these labels are as well-known as established ones like the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval or consumer electronics certifications, but they are rising in market prominence and placement.

Natural fibers and fabrics: Even though synthetic materials like polyester and memory foam are industry staples (suppliers and retailers have been wildly successful selling “micro-fiber” bedding even though it is essentially a descendent of polyester double-knit fabrics from the disco era), the raw material spectrum has dramatically increased recently, with tree-derived cellulose, linen, bamboo and other natural fibers. Cotton still maintains its overwhelming market share—but there, too, differentiators like Supima, Egyptian and Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) offerings are gaining in importance.

CBD: As part of a broader effort to jump on the health-and-wellness bandwagon, several companies introduced bedding products containing CBD extracts, either applied topically to the fabric or infused into the fibers. Without making explicit health claims—still very much illegal under U.S. laws, even as CBD itself is legal throughout the country—companies certainly implied that these products were good for you. The first wave will hit the market possibly as early as this holiday season, giving the industry a better read on consumer acceptance.

All of this attention to technology, innovation and product performance stands in stark contrast to earlier eras. Yes, there was fashion and, yes, there were plenty of designer names, but today the industry clearly is taking a different tack—one that strips products down to their essential elements, prioritizing origin and ethics over thread count or frills.

In fact, the only real exception to the less-is-more dictum came in the form of a novelty fad product, the weighted blanket. Countless companies showed heavy-weight blankets and comforters that supposedly promote better sleep. In that case, more is more. But nearly everywhere else, the less the better.

HARPER – AN UPHOLSTERY FABRIC IN BOUCLÉ-GLAMMER-OPTIC

The interplay of a brilliant, fine warp and a voluminous bouclé yarn lends the upholstery fabric Harper an appealing, interesting appearance. Thanks to its soft handle Harper radiates pure homeliness. It is also extremely hard-wearing and can be universally used due to its wide range of colours (21 colours). Powdery relaxed tones are complemented by strongly contrasting colours: Black Plum, Bright Gold, Burnt Olive, Cranberry and Scarlet Red. Nutural colours such as a warm Shadow White and Biscuit contrast with a deep Black and are accentuated by metal tones.

CONNOR – WOOL OPTIC WITH A FUNCTION

Connor is an allround talent which is universally useable. It combines a natural wool look and the durability and price advantage of a polyester fabric. The polyester fabric achieves its natural wool apperance by a melange yarn which as a twill weave produces both quiet and contrasting shades. Connor can be used as an upholstery or furnishing fabric and it has a good sound absorption (class B). The above-average lightfastness is graded 5 – 6. A comprehensive colour range (28 colours) enables very fine colour gradations. Especially amongst the natural tones we can find selected shades such as Light Grey, Granite, Walnut, Desert Sand. Typical wool colours such as Deep Forest, Scarlet Red, Deep Lagoon, Burnt Sienna and Autumn Red enlarge and enrich the colour spectrum.

Nisha Art: Custom Paintings

5325E846-F0DC-44AE-8B46-C4B63FB5ABD9Every art has a story. No matter what form of art it is. It is a story of imagination. And here’s mine. Art was my to go escape from reality as a kid and then it became my passion, my career. But now there is no need to escape anymore because my imagination is my reality. I loved just to sit and paint all day long. Sometimes for hours and hours where I would not get up from my chair. It gave me peace, brought me a to world of belonging. Where I could be me and just paint away. Every painting, still life, textile, design I created has a personality, a character an imagination. No matter if I was just painting a flower, stem, Apple. They all had their own story to share. Preparation of my art materials excites me and is very important to me. My space where I would sit and do art, my wooden palette, my colors, brushes, water, a rag, tissue, the style and texture of my medium I am painting on. Everything even till today is very detailed and thoughtful. This preparation is my temple, my sacred place where no one could go but me. It was for me. Always there for me. Whenever I wanted I could go and be me. Be me with my paints and brushes and ready to play. Once I am prepared I sit and listen to my imagination, the story it wants to share about that thing or the person I am painting for. The mixing of colors, the depth of layers, the details, highlights, shadows, composition. It makes my paintings come alive. My art gives me purpose to live, hope, strength, put words when I didn’t have. It shared my happiness and tears. Yes. Art is just not a piece that we hang on the wall or any design on any medium. To me its a sacred friend, a place, a world only for you. That piece of art, design knows you and only you. It will always lift you up no matter where you are in life. And this is what I love when I create art or any design. And these are the stories I will be sharing. Hope you enjoy as much as I have enjoyed making them. They all speak to an individual I did paintings for and what my imagination told me about them. It was very inspiring for me to paint their imagination.

I can create custom paintings for any and all occasion. Gift wrapped with personalized message. These custom paintings are personalized to the clients energy and feel of who they are. The colors, brush strokes, textures, concept creates your story of you.

I look forward to painting your journey and imagination.
