Taking advantage of the latest innovative technology, manufacturers are able to incorporate green elements and more user-friendly properties into their products. Here are some of our highlighted exhibitors who are ready to showcase their latest collections.

Their MICROFIBRES brands are known throughout the word for innovative design and superior quality. The majority of the company’s products are made with nylon 66 which produces very soft but durable products that are also Oeko-Tex-certified.
Whole home exhibitors offering customised home decoration solutions
Due to the growing middle and upper classes in China, consumers’ buying trends have shifted from buying single home textile products to a combination of items with one particular design trend. Matching this trend, a number of whole home exhibitors that provide one-stop services, from selecting home textile products to giving home decoration ideas, have been under the limelight in recent editions of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – and 2018 is no exception.
This year, visitors can also discover some of the distinctive whole home companies such as Coomo Home which imports mid-range to high-end products to the China market. They have gained more than 1,000 product patents, and have their own design team for customising interior design solutions.
Another featured exhibitor, Mulei Textile, specialises in all kinds of linen products ranging from bedding and curtains to sofa upholstery, carpets and more. They will demonstrate in their booth how to create a green, environmentally friendly and healthy living space. A supplier of Ikea, Maisons, Depot and Intratuin, Casa’I Do is another whole home exhibitor that excels at making use of colour mixtures, nature and plants, metal and gold to create different themes for whole home decoration and products.
The show will be held from August 27 -30, 2018 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai. Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Autumn Edition is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).
