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.
