Comprehensive sourcing experience awaits buyers at Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles this March

Date:

Shanghai, 15 February 2024. Over 250 exhibitors from seven countries and regions have booked their booths for the Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles, scheduled to take place from 6 – 8 March at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). Synchronising with China’s peak sourcing season, the upcoming show will cater to the diverse needs of buyers seeking the newest solutions to spring the home textiles industry forward.

Speaking at the previous show, Mr Mihail Tornea, Commercial Director of Mezanin-V SRL, said: “The Spring Edition is crucial for our mid-season collections. We have been sourcing fabrics for sofas, bedding, curtains and other home and contract products, and found six almost-confirmed suppliers. We are aiming to spend USD 3 million on Chinese textile products this year. Thanks to China reopening, we can source products of better quality, quantity, and price. I will definitely visit the fair again.”

Beyond functional basics, home textiles have developed into integral lifestyle elements, with the global market projected to achieve a CAGR of 6% from 2024 to 2030[1]. Driven by evolving consumer preferences and expanding economic opportunities, this sector has witnessed considerable product innovation. Forward-thinking manufacturers continuously refine their offerings through sustainability, creative designs, high-quality materials, versatile patterns, and multi-functional applications.

Across 27,000 sqm, this year’s spring show will reflect this broad marketplace, covering the full spectrum of home textile products, including bedding and towelling, rugs, table and kitchen linen, upholstery and curtain fabrics, home textile technologies, textile design, and more.
