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.
