Style Aisle Textile Marathon

With seemingly endless aisles of textiles, wall and window coverings, a marathon stamina is required to truly experience all of Heimtextil. While trends like this year’s blue and red predilection come and go, this show is always a formidable force in the textile industry.

Simple geometric patterns with a splash of colour, a tactile texture and a mid-century modern feel made the Stitch Collection my stand out wallcovering product at the show. The six unique designs were created in-house and are available in a variety of colours to suit any space. www.bnwalls.com

The Ishi drape fabric, with its intricate stitching and ability to fool the eye to believe it was sewn together from multiple pieces, is visually striking especially in the light grey option, one of five colour choices. www.saum-und-viebahn.de
