For the official Heimtextil Trend Preview, Stijlinstituut Amsterdam director Anne Marie Commandeur introduced the new design themes. The presentation in the run-up to Heimtextil (7-10 January 2020) took place at the Textile Museum’s Textile Lab in Tilburg, the Netherlands on 11 September 2019 and was streamed worldwide.

This season, Stijlinstituut Amsterdam is responsible for the Trend Book content and Trend Space implementation at the upcoming international trade fair for home and contract textiles.

Together with the Heimtextil management team, these Trend Council participants gave insights into future styles during a workshop.

At the annual international Trend Council workshop, identity was an ever-present topic: part of a broader discussion on gender and cultural diversity, on tolerance and curiosity.

Heimtextil 2020: Internationale Strahlkraft nimmt weiter zu trendcouncil (c) Pietro Sutera-Messe FrankfurtHeimtextil 2020: international appeal continues to increase

The development in Heimtextil exhibitors over the past few years shows one thing clearly: while the German market is currently going through a challenging period and the number of producers and retailers is declining, Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main is positioned as a world-leading platform with a strong international appeal. This trend is set to continue at the upcoming trade fair for home and contract textiles (7-10 January 2020).

Exhibitor numbers have increased year on year over the course of the past decade, from 2469 (2010) to 3012 at the most recent edition (2019). This significant growth has come from abroad: 2125 companies from abroad attended Heimtextil in 2010. In January 2019, this number had risen to 2714 and is increasing all the time. There is also a positive upswing in the number of visitors from abroad.* ‘As before, we are seeing growth from other countries in Europe and overseas. International manufacturers rely on Heimtextil as an attractive platform for export business and as a trendsetting launch event where they can present their new season products at the start of the year’, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt. ... mehr lesen
