Inga Lukauskiene, the founder of LinenMe, has been following industry trends and developments for the last 17 years, and one of the best ways of keeping your designs up-to-date is participating in trade fairs and shows. Heimtextil is one of them, and this year it will be the 7th time Inga is taking part as an exhibitor.
Heimtextil, the international trade fair for home textiles and commercially used textiles, is traditionally taking place in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) from 14 to 17 of January 2009.
Heimtextil 2009 will set the trends for two forthcoming years (2009/2010), providing the exhibitors with a trend book 2009/10, which, interestingly enough, is focusing on handcrafted textiles and techniques, such as laces, hand embroidery and hemstitching.
LinenMe already has a wide collection of hand embroidered and hemstitched home linens, such as Queen linen tablecloths, Celebrity placemats, Felicia towels, and hemstitched bed linen. Needless to say, Inga is looking forward to getting more ideas on how traditional handcraft skills can be applied to new modern home textile designs:
“I am very excited and extremely pleased that handmade designs are coming back to fashion. From crocheted trimmings to intricate embroidery, from hemstitching to lace, it all looks so exciting, especially considering that we already produce a vast range of hand-made linens. It’s lovely to experience the revival of old textile-producing and textile-decorating techniques.”
This year over 2700 exhibitors from sixty countries will have their products displayed at Heimtextil. The event is considered to be the biggest and most important international trade fair for home and commercial textiles. The event is the leading platform for textile designers, product developers, architects, furnishers, manufacturers and retailers from around the globe.
Inga has submitted several linen designs to the Trends Show that takes place within Heimtextil. Each year several designs get selected from hundreds of participants and then displayed in a designated hall during the event.
