Product Overview   

Home Textiles Update is an executive briefing, supplied in electronic format. Each month, we include details of the latest developments and business news in the home textiles sector.
Every issue focuses on product developments and innovations in the home textiles sector. In addition, we provide a business update each month -- so that you remain aware of the key players and their activities, and so that you can plan your company's strategy with confidence.
What's in it?
"Home Textiles Update" includes information on carpets, bedding products, towelling products, table linen, curtains and upholstery fabrics. The publication also includes developments in the important contract business.

Like all Textiles Intelligence publications, "Home Textiles Update" is a reliable source of independently sourced business information, and it does not carry advertising. Recent issues contain details of acquisitions within the sector, events, financial results, markets, new fibres and fabrics for home textiles, and trend forecasts.
