SHOWTIME® WELCOME

from the ITA President People often ask me why I joined ITA’s board of directors and for me, the answer is simple: I want to give back to the industry that has given me my career. I love this industry and all it entails: Showtime Market, High Point Furniture Market, my customers, my competitors, always having lint and yarn all over my clothes, mentoring young people in our industry, and well, I love most all of it! It’s that love and excitement for this industry that I hope to share with our members and the board of directors during my term as President. We have a great board with a shared passion to make our organization about more than just two shows a year. We’re committed to the vision for a year-round organization that is known as the authority in our industry. We are excited to put our ideas in place and create an atmosphere of shared ideas and hopes—not just for the future of our membership—but the industry as a whole.

KELLY DIFOGGIO

As a board, we continue to focus on adding value to our membership. One of our many priorities is education. We have already added educational discussions to our bi-annual membership meeting and held our first in a series of educational seminars. Attendance at our membership meetings and our first seminar has been so strong that we can see the ongoing need and desire for educational initiatives within our industry—and we will continue to target these needs. In order to stay on top of all the exciting things we are doing with your organization, make sure that we have your correct contact information at registration. You can also follow us on social media: ITA Showtime on Facebook and @ITAShowtime on Instagram. And, there’s always room at the table of one of our many committees if you’re interested in paying it forward!

Respectfully,

Kelly DiFoggio, ITA President

American Silk Mills™ Debuts ASM Loft™ – an Exciting New Brand of Affordable Luxury Sparked by a need for more affordable luxury, American Silk Mills™ delivers incredible value and timeless aesthetics with the debut of ASM Loft™. Like the lofts for which it’s named, this brand is accessible yet sophisticated and chic. These plains and feature textiles are among the first products developed by American Silk Mills™ and woven by parent company Sutlej Textiles and Industries Limited. Both the ASM and Sutlej design teams are excited about this collaboration. It allows the brand to deliver both incredibly subtle, as well as richly saturated, palettes in an array of novelty yarns for which Sutlej is known. “ASM Loft™ is one of the first brands to bring truly affordable luxury to market,” said David Corbin, chief executive officer for American Silk Mills™. “We recognize an industry need for high-end, luxury fabrics that fits budgets at every level. Collaborating closely with our partner and parent company, Sutlej, we’ve developed a collection we are enthusiastic and proud to share. ASM Loft™ will open doors to new accounts that need more accessible price points.” A Luxe collection aptly named Anthology combines refined velvets, epingles and silks while drawing on a rich, yet edited, provenance of art and design.

Perfectly imperfect, Off Loom inspires an easy, organic ethos with relaxed textures and geometric jacquards that appear hand-painted. Suggesting a maker’s movement energy, novelty yarns and constructions invite touch and create an incredible hand while blending seamlessly into a context of organic, vegetable-dyed tints. American Silk Mills™ offers 123 years of design expertise backed by the state-of-the-art capabilities of its parent company Sutlej. The result is the next generation of innovative luxury textiles.

“ Color Evolution” on Display at De Leo This season, design leader De Leo Textiles arrives at market with a range of introductions highlighting its focus on “color evolution.” The new looks illustrate how trends morph and evolve in the home furnishings industry instead of changing dramatically from season to season. “We want to show our customers how this trend evolution happens,” explains Katie Atwater Williams, creative director. “For instance, warm neutrals remain a strong staple in our palette as they evolve from the browns and coppers of our winter 2018 Canyon palette into updated golden tones paired with taupe—a look we’re calling Tiger’s Eye. In our Enchanted direction, our spring 2019 Grenache transitions into a richer red called Bloodstone, while popular pink and purple tones from the last few seasons become more muted and subdued. And, our Oceanic direction is a reflection of Fluidity transitioning to the greener side of blue with the resurgence of teal and aqua, highlighting the growing importance of versatile and transseasonal tones.” Also debuting this market are fresh looks in De Leo’s Penelope collection—a direction offering affordable options with boutique style. “We are really turning up the volume, using brand-new yarns and innovative constructions that haven’t been seen before,” says Williams. “Our new chunky boucle yarn is heavily influencing this collection and creating super luxurious over-thetop textures.” A standout is the new chunky boucle “Ruby”—a gorgeous texture at a great value. Also look for several new fil coupe qualities that tie into the continued popularity of fringe. De Leo loves to give back and this season it is selling cosmetic bags (made from some of its recycled Carousel showroom display materials) to benefit the Epilepsy Foundation—an organization near and dear to the company since Craig De Leo’s daughter Nadia is affected by the neurological disorder.

The convergence of apparel and home furnishings encourages self-expression while creating an immersive lifestyle experience. By: Kim D. Shaver

ITA Showtime® Market • November 17-20, 2019

SHOWTIME® FEATURE

Consumers are hungry for a complete lifestyle experience and the ability to express themselves seamlessly from fashion to home. That’s why the worlds of fashion and interior design have never been so closely aligned. The pervasive impact of social media has reinforced the trend. “In an era driven by what is ‘Instaworthy,’ fashion designers are finding ways to translate apparel design into home décor in order to meet consumer demand,” says Kristen Moonjian, home interiors editor for international trend forecaster Fashion Snoops. “We can thank social media for bringing home furnishings and fashion full circle as a reflection of the individual.” The result? More and more collaboration between the fashion world and home furnishings world—from the mass market to the high end, and from full-line traditional furniture sources to online retailers.

BRAND IMMERSION When fashion brands offer home furnishings, it gives them a platform to create a complete, immersive lifestyle experience with more gravitas and timelessness. “Entering the home market strengthens the brand’s identity and forms a full point of view,” says Moonjian. One fashion brand that’s turned to designing furnishings is celebrity evening wear and wedding dress design duo Badgley Mischka. “We’ve always considered home to be an extension of what you wear, and we love that Celebrity evening wear it can be an investment piece design duo Badgley Mischka has bridged the much like a wonderful gown,” line between apparel and says James Mischka, founding interiors with its line of partner of Badgley Mischka. “Of home furnishings. course, furniture has to be far more durable than clothing—we make sure every piece is dog-proof and family-proof, which we can’t do with clothing!” How similar are fashion and home-fashion design? Mischka says he finds the design process for furniture to be “remarkably like designing fashion in so many ways. You are creating an environment, either a micro- or macro-factor.”

The Love. Joy. Bliss. whole-home collection from Miranda Kerr and Universal Furniture offers timeless pieces with feminine influences.

RUNWAY TO RESIDENTIAL One of the most recent collaborations between the worlds of fashion and furniture is Universal Furniture’s new 50-piece whole-home group with Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr. It’s been said the word “home” evokes more positive emotion than any other besides “love,” and Kerr leaned into the idea with the name she gave the collection: Love. Joy. Bliss. After two decades in the fashion spotlight, Kerr transitioned from the runway to becoming a style icon, businesswoman and mother. Renowned for her impeccable style and setting the agenda for upcoming fashion trends, she is a social media icon with more than 25 million combined followers across social media. Style-setter Miranda Kerr is bringing her years of experience in fashion and on the runway to her new collection with Universal Furniture.

HIGH FASHION TO HOME FASHION

Echoing the interior aesthetic in the two homes the Australian supermodel shares with her husband and young children, the Love. Joy. Bliss. collection embraces clean geometric lines and muted palettes, with pops of blush pink and gold, along with luxe finishes and plush fabrics. “My intention when creating this home collection was to have pieces that are not only beautiful and functional, but also have an element of uplifting, loving energy,” explains Kerr. “For me, home is my sanctuary, and that’s why I am passionate about this collection. Not only do the pieces look beautiful in the home, they also promote a positive energy, and balance function with style.” As a mother of three children, Kerr was intentional about using performance fabrics on all the upholstery so “each piece can be loved and lived in.” Her favorite piece in the collection? “I love the combination of the soft pastel tone and soft gold finished base on the Runway Console, and how the clean lines are juxtaposed by the three-dimensional front panels. Simple, stylish and practical, it hides away our family board games and is the perfect piece to display family photos and fresh flowers,” she says.

THE FASHION-FORWARD HOME Among the most noteworthy collaborations between a fashion designer and furniture brand is the Cynthia Rowley for Hooker Furniture line. Launched to retail floors in 2016, the design partnership united a leading contemporary fashion designer and one of the most revered brands in home furnishings.

HOME + FASHION ON FILM The link between fashion and interiors is intriguing people outside its industries. Interior Motives, a documentary from filmmaker Natalie Shirinian, provides fascinating insights into the cross-over between the two worlds. Making its debut this summer at the Rhode Island International Film Festival, the film examines the links between the two To view the movie trailer, visit vimeo.com/337348270 fields and their shared connections with fabrics, textiles and finishes. Interviewing fashion designers, interior designers and brands that have crossed over, director Shirinian characterizes the shared bond between fashion and interiors as being about creating a lifestyle and seeing a brand in more than just one way. Explored in the film, it leaves you asking what fashion can learn from interiors and what interiors can learn from fashion. ITA Showtime® Market • November 17-20, 2019

Rowley’s global lifestyle brand includes ready-towear, accessories, fitness, surf and swimwear and home goods. Known for her eye-catching prints and pretty, flirty style, she incorporated her signature design aesthetic into surface patterns and finishes in her line of occasional, accent and office furniture with Hooker Casegoods. “Fashion and style reach beyond clothes…It’s the art of living,” says Rowley.

MENSWEAR-INSPIRED FURNISHINGS The influence of fashion-inspired home furnishings also extends to online retailers. In September, directOnline retailer The Inside to-consumer home features a home collection inspired by timeless menswear furnishings platform fashion motifs. The Inside launched a furniture collection inspired by timeless menswear fashion motifs. Reflecting styles across the 20th Century, the collection was inspired by looks spanning pinstripe suits to vintage ties. “From the dapper suiting of the Art Deco age to sleek stylings of 1990s Versace, the evolution of menswear has remained a decades-long touchstone for interior design,” says Christiane Lemieux, co-founder and CEO of The Inside.

FASHION’S INFLUENCE When asked the single greatest way fashion influences the line of iconic, high-end brand Century Furniture, creative director Lynn Wright didn’t hesitate. “Selfexpressionism,” she says. “As in fashion, Century’s

product line offers an infinite variety of styles, finish treatments, hardware and fabric applications. Finding the style that lets a customer express how they see themselves is just as important in the furnishings they select as it is in the clothing they choose to wear.” “Layering patterns and textures in home furnishings is very much like putting together a stylish wardrobe,” says Wright. “Florals paired with plaids, interesting textural tweeds, boucles and velvets create a fun mix of fabrics that add warmth and color to a room. A burnished leather chair complements a room as much as a well-loved classic handbag complements a favorite suit or dress.”

HAUTE COUTURE FOR HOME Luxury furniture brand Marge Carson considers itself “haute couture for home.” “For us, it has to be luxurious—we strive to add uniquely-designed fabrics and trims that are intriguing to the eye,” says Laurie Reed, creative director. “Finishing and leafing goes along with that, so the customization and embellishment that we can do on our pieces is almost endless and allows for a lot of creative self-expression in the home…which we believe is what haute couture is all about—luxurious, artistic self-expression.” Marge Carson recently launched its Custom Couture Upholstery Collection which gives designers and consumers the ability to select from several arm, base and pillow styles—as well as from a multitude of trims, fabrics and finishes. “Taking a cue from fashion apparel, our couture trims are following a more modern vibe with an edgier attitude,” says Reed. “Tassels and brushed fringes are sharing the spotlight with fashionable tapes, cords and trims.”

New York, New York: Apparel collections on the runways of Spring 2020 New York Fashion Week (NYFW) earlier this fall were beaming with joy and optimism and looks intentionally designed to evoke emotions. Positivity, individuality and diversity were expressed through trends such as bright colors and prints, 80s nostalgia, sustainability and Americana, according to Melissa Moylan, vice president and creative director for Womenswear at global trend forecasting agency Fashion Snoops.

“Romanticized silhouettes and elaborate florals of the Rococo decorative style were prevalent on the NYFW runways and are sure to make their way into the home,” says Fashion Snoops’ home interiors editor Kristen Moonjian. Voluminous silhouettes, metallic threads, over-the-top fringe and a plethora of ruffles also caught her attention this season. The Brock Collection’s floral, smocked, loosefitting jacket and blouse captures this trend of romantic, relaxed silhouettes. As designers such as Brock play with proportion and mixing oversized and structured silhouettes, these more relaxed, comfort-first silhouettes will make their way into home fashion, Moonjian predicts.

Alexandar Wang’s flag sweatshirt and tasseled cowboy pants show an updated Americana influence on its way to home interiors, says Fashion Snoops’ home interiors editor Kristen Moonjian. “I expect to see tassels and exaggerated fringe incorporated into décor pieces.” Image: Fashion Snoops

Most notable at this year’s shows was an intrinsic emotional appeal in new fashion apparel. “Clothes were designed to make us feel something,” says Moylan. “There was a new sensual aesthetic that borrows from lounge and intimate apparel, and some designers cited positivity as a design inspiration.” With vibrant hues and 80s-influnced palettes, color provided a point of inspiration for many. “We always love floral patterns, and the Marc Jacobs floral pantsuit in shades of optimistic and confident green with a romantic, Asian flair, caught our eye for upholstery fabric inspiration,” says Lynn Wright, creative director of Century Furniture. James Mischka, founding partner of famous celebrity fashion designer duo Badgley Mischka, says, “We think the exuberance and color from the new apparel collections will influence furniture and home décor in general. Prints and brights will be key!”

THE ART OF

Textile designers and merchandisers are creating unique narratives to introduce and market their newest looks. By Trisha McBride Ferguson Walking the halls of SHOWTIME® market is always inspiring—regardless of whether you consider yourself creative or not. The visual presentations, explosions of color and abundance of enticing textures create an experience unlike any other. And that’s just from the hallways. Inside the showrooms, today’s top textile manufacturers and distributors are weaving narratives designed to introduce their

latest collections, position them within the trend spectrum, and give customers the language and imagery to share with their team. Many times, that conversation trickles down to retail sales associate training and eventually reaches interior designers and consumers. “When fabric is displayed in a way that tells a story, it makes it memorable for not only consumers, but our sales representatives too,” says Erika Edgerly, design assistant at Yarn & Loom. “There becomes a narrative between textures, colors, and names that read in a catchy way that imprints on your memory.”


VISUAL STORYTELLING

“I think it’s important to let our customers know where our ideas come from,” says Katie Williams, creative director at De Leo Textiles. “Not only to explain why and how the product is on trend, but also to give credit to the resources and cultures from where our inspiration was drawn.” Yet this type of storytelling marketing hasn’t always been the norm. “Fifteen years ago, textiles were designed, merchandised and purchased by category, such as plains, patterns and prints,” explains Sue Patrolia, director of product development and design for Regal Fabrics. “That’s the way it was presented as well, color line after color line, perhaps categorized by price point. Things have totally changed. Now we have a lot of work to do before we begin the design process.”

VISUAL STORYTELLING From showroom displays and hangtags to videos, handouts and social media, textile merchandisers are using a variety of tools to convey their story. At each Showtime market, Valdese Weavers dedicates a central part of its showroom to displaying a small furnished vignette featuring new introductions. “We’re trying to show how the fabrics come to life, to provide a starting point reimagined in a sofa or drapes,” says Christy Almond, vice president of product development and marketing. “We want to inspire visitors. We show different qualities together and marry fabrics with frames in unexpected ways to push people to think in different ways.” Storytelling as a marketing tool has its roots in the rise and dominance of coordinated fabric collections. “Covington has always marketed our products in themed collections and coordinated color stories,” says Thomas Bruno, senior vice president of sales. “The origin of coordinated collections was a mainstay in the early Covington years and has continued to evolve over the years. Our strong suit is that we have the ability to coordinate prints, woven textures, and jacquards to make a true multipurpose collection. The coordinated collection helps to define what we are trying to convey to the market and reinforces who we are. Our reps can tell a story by Valdese Weavers illustrates the creative showing the line.” applications of its new introductions in vignettes throughout its showroom.

Taking the mood board concept to new heights, De Leo Textiles curates imagery and materials that bring its introductions to life.

Visitors to the De Leo Textiles showroom get a brief overview of current trends and inspiration before they see new collections. “That way they know what to look for and why they are seeing certain elements and colors showing up throughout the line,” explains Williams. “We put together trend boards for each showroom and display them with the fabrics that best represent each concept. We also offer a trend book that customers can take with them—this season we will be introducing Volume Six of our De Leo Color Guide!” When it comes to selling a creative product such as textiles, the storytelling approach resonates at many levels. “It’s one of the reasons Covington is so successful; it’s our way of keeping our customer engaged and excited,” says Bruno. “Our social media presence is growing dramatically and that’s how we get our message to the consumer. We are beginning to create a pull-through marketing campaign to the ultimate consumer.” “Many customers pin pages from our trend books up on the wall in their workrooms for inspiration,” says Williams. “Others say they use our story lines and verbiage at their sales meetings and with their customers. And, many customers use our trend resources for social media content. This is the whole reason we put these trend stories together—to give our customers helpful sound bites, imagery and resources that they can use.” ITA Showtime® Market • November 17-20, 2019

With the unceasing popularity of Pinterest® and Instagram®, visual storytelling has become the norm in many industries. In home fabrics and textiles, it continues to evolve into a fine art. “While telling trend stories is still a form of entertainment, we try to make it much more useful and understandable,” explains Williams. “Since the goal is for customers to be able to utilize our trend stories with the endconsumer, we want to give them something relatable that can be easily translated to their customers. More conceptual inspiration stories are important

and appreciated within the artistic community, but we try to tell simplified, relatable versions of these stories that make sense to the end-consumer, to let them know why they should want this color/texture/ pattern in their home.” “It’s been a fantastic creative journey to get where we are now and as we continue to evolve,” adds Patrolia. “While we have been focused on educating and inspiring our customers, when we are doing our job well, we are giving them a story they can carry forward.

CREATIVITY AT ITS FINEST A LOOK AT SOME OF THE INSPIRING STORIES BEING TOLD

A Trend Review from a recent season at Valdese Weavers included the Casbah collection. Along with extraordinary imagery, the direction was described as: Referencing tribal textiles found in Moroccan markets, this palette is sultry and exotic. Warm notes of currant and cassis blend with cooler shades of indigo and teal. Accents of yellow and persimmon add pops of bright color. The Free Spirit collection from Yarn & Loom features names like Morrison, Joplin and Mary Jane. Escapism presented by De Leo earlier this year included themes such as Off the Grid, Concrete Jungle, and Fluidity. Within the Off the Grid direction, colors had names such as Moonstone, Opaline, Limestone and Mica.

De Leo Textiles creates showroom visuals that illustrate and provide context to its new directions.

ELECTRUM A color suggestive of alternating currents, Electrum is the 2020+ key trend color for North America and the beginning of a new decade. The complex green-influenced gold metallic has a chameleon quality that allows it to shift between the two hues and take on altered energy in concert with other hues. This is not a chameleon color to match the background, but one to enhance it. Electrum represents different paths as 2020 approaches and symbolizes the complexity of the future. Its color intricacy will enhance everything from action/recreation to home accessories and the metallic influence of its gold will touch personal care products, electronics and graphics.

FEEL REAL Feel Real, the 2020+ and new decade’s key trend color for Europe, is a color for life’s journeys and experiences. Despite our augmented, virtual, sometimes disconnected world, at the end of the day, we need engage with life that feels real. Feel Real is an Earth inspired brown, is visually engaging, and activates the senses for scent and touch in a way that exudes sensuality, frivolity or surprise. You can practically caress and smell the sweetness of this clay-like color.

REUSES Upcycling solutions for textile scraps are generating unique products.

Sustainable solutions for textile remnants have grown in recent years as more companies explore By: Madison Brazier the benefits of repurposing fabrics and yarns. Recognizing the environmental impact of overflowing landfills, innovative organizations are finding ways to give a second life to remnants and samples. ReWeave L.A., a Los Angeles-based home products maker, takes discarded fabric scraps and samples and transforms them into oneof-a-kind and small-batch luxury home goods, apparel and pet pillows. Its creations celebrate the chance and beauty of unexpected combinations of materials with designs that are soulful and unique. “Over the years, we borrowed many fabric samples for interior design projects,” says Debbie Quyang, co-founder of ReWeave L.A. “We always wondered what happened to the returned swatches at the end of each season. We learned showrooms discard the materials to make room for incoming collections. Julie Benniardi and I recognized the environmental effects of textile waste and we saw an opportunity to launch a social enterprise to upcycle materials into unique luxury home goods. Thus ReWeave L.A. was born.”

FROM RAGS TO REUSES

Every ReWeave L.A. product begins as a pile of last season’s fabric samples from top interior design showrooms. Co-founders Quyang and Benniardi personally sort through all of the materials and design each new product—all of which are made by artisans in Los Angeles. Committed to placing every swatch within a patchwork design, the organization never throws away any contributions.

Illustrating the unique beauty of upcycled materials, this coat was created by Weaving Hand in partnership with Jussara Lee.

ReWeave L.A.’s mission is three-fold. It’s trying to reduce the amount of fabric waste that enters landfills each year—particularly from the interior design industry. Second, it’s embracing Los Angeles’ unique creative culture by designing and producing all of its goods locally. And, the organization is committed to supporting its community by investing in job training for local residents facing barriers to employment.

SMART SCRAPS Recognizing the fabric and garment industries create massive amounts of waste that go directly into landfills, Cynthia Alberto created Weaving Hand. A Brooklyn-based studio and healing arts center, Weaving Hand combines traditional and contemporary weaving techniques with sustainable sourcing practices. Its Zero Waste Weaving initiative works with designers to repurpose material waste into “yarn” for use in new creations. The results are edgy fashion pieces made from repurposed fabric scraps.

Each of these throw blankets designed by ReWeave L.A. founders Julie Benniardi and Debbie Quyang has its own unique name.

Made with indoor and outdoor fabrics, ReWeave L.A.’s ball pillows mix and match styles to create stylish ecofriendly home accents.

ReWeave L.A. collects thousands of pounds of textiles every year. Instead of entering landfills, these fabric swatches are repurposed by local artisans and manufacturers to make one-of-a-kind home goods.

“The scrap yardage is cut into strips and used as the weft material,” says founder and director Cynthia Alberto. “We help designers eliminate waste while adding one-of-a-kind pieces to their collections. The pieces are all custom and embody the designer’s aesthetic through palette and design. ”Weaving Hand’s partnerships result in beautiful apparel with positive environmental, social and cultural impact. The organization also hosts “Weaving Together,” a series of ongoing collaborative weaving events that focus on healing the community and creating interpersonal relationships through the act of weaving together. While raising awareness of textile waste, the events let attendees bring their own materials—ranging from old clothes, fishing line, rope, or anything that can be made thin, flexible, and string-like—to add to the loom for weaving. Weaving Together events give community members a chance to celebrate their neighborhood through the process of weaving. Hosted in different areas, they bring together people of all backgrounds and experiences for a day or weekend of weaving. The process helps build community around something tangible while letting the diversity of the materials become a reflection of its makers.

“Artists and craftspeople are leading the charge of creating custom, beautiful pieces of art, fashion and other innovative products from existing discarded textiles that would otherwise go to landfills,” says Weitzner. “This provides a new business model to follow and these products are being sold and used in homes across the nation. These repurposing projects seem to be expanding every day and it makes use of a lot of waste, in innovative and beautiful realizations.” Despite the growing demand for eco-friendly products in the industry, Weitzner acknowledges the need for greater education on the topic. “There is so much waste in general that every bit of repurposing can help. A few things need to happen at once for a real impact. Repurposing is certainly one, and all the recycling of fabrics, as well as yarns, is another. Also trying to be more thoughtful about how we sample our color blankets with the mills, and how we sample for the industry.”

ITA MEMBER NEWS

NEW MEMBER Equus Fabrics / Michèle Martin

Studio is a Canadian-based design studio dedicated to fun, funky, and fresh fabric design. It believes in exploring bold patterns and never shying away from the use of colour. Owner Michèle Martin, AKA Firecracker, has been playing with fabrics since she was young. Michèle Martin Studio also offers a second line: Kiki & LaLa Design Co.

NEW MEMBER Sunbelievable™ offers the highestquality, best-performing indoor/outdoor products, as well as a quick-ship cut yardage program. Its new debuts include Creative Casuals—a mix of cozy, ultra-soft luxurious chenille and “rattan” bouclés as well as a Vintage Novelties collection and Modern Culture Collection.

BELLA-DURA® TO LAUNCH HOME LINE AT NOVEMBER SHOWTIME

NEW MEMBER J. Queen New York, a leading manufacturer of luxury home products, has developed a line of quality fabrics including sheers, linens, velvets and dim outs, sourced globally and available to jobbers, A&D, hospitality, and retail industries. From drapery to multipurpose and upholstery qualities, its 23 separate collections include 264 beautiful colors.

NEW MEMBER Leslie Jee Textiles designs and distributes upholstery fabrics to upholstery manufacturers, fabric jobbers, and retailers. Although not exhibiting at Showtime, its latest introduction— Open Road—is launching through its local sales representatives and is inspired by the great outdoors with a nostalgic nod to the 1970s.

Bella-Dura®, the textile brand known for the ultimate performance for indoor and outdoor use, is set to unveil a brand-new line of residential fabrics. Developed to create harmony between beauty and performance, Bella-Dura HOME—under the design direction of Sarah Keelen, and featuring many outdoor patterns by Wesley Mancini, is ideal for furniture manufacturers and retailers who can provide their customers with what they desire in a residential indoor and outdoor performance fabric – one that is soft to the touch, yet tough to the core. This translates to extreme durability–with patterns exceeding a minimum of 30k double rubs—pill resistance, stain resistance, fade resistance, bleach cleanability and a 5-year warranty. And like all Bella-Dura products to date, the line is all woven in the USA. The complete collection will launch at November Showtime, with over 50 new patterns in multiple color ways.

NEW MEMBER Stein Fibers, Ltd. has been serving

CREST LEATHER Crest Leather, a global company tanning group headquartered in London, is making monumental moves locally. As a leading supplier of upholstery leather, the company has announced the opening of a permanent showroom on the 3rd floor of the Home Fashions Resource Center. The new showroom will feature over 200 colors and patterns ready to ship from their new 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse in the Federal Business Park, not far from their former location on Gallimore Dairy Road in Greensboro. “While it has been quite a feat to take on an office move and finalize the design details for a permanent showroom within weeks of each other, we are thrilled about how things are progressing and look forward to welcoming clients to our new showroom. The showroom, which will be ready in time for Showtime this November, features modern aesthetics with an industrial feel and a private meeting area,” reports Lucio Esposito, USA Managing Director.

THE CRYPTON® COMPANIES ACQUIRE ABERCROMBIE TEXTILES The Crypton Companies (Crypton LLC & Nanotex LLC), leading providers of performance textile technologies in the contract, home furnishings, and apparel markets, announced they have entered into a formal agreement to acquire the operations of Abercrombie Textiles, a North Carolina-based textile mill. With a deep commitment to U.S. manufacturing and the preservation and advancement of the American textile industry, Crypton and Abercrombie share a long working relationship and a common customer base. “This acquisition will create the perfect synergy out of a shared vision. Bringing together an American mill and an American textile innovator will not only preserve jobs but will also create growth and generate new opportunities for American-made textiles,” says Lance Keziah, CEO of Crypton LLC. “It will add a key vertical platform to our business that will help Crypton continue to grow and better serve the needs of our expanding customer base.” Crypton is immediately infusing capital into the company and has been working closely with all suppliers and customers to ensure a smooth transition.

“We are not simply acquiring a mill, we’re carrying on the work of an established, respected partner. We’re uniquely positioned to support the ongoing success of Abercrombie’s venerable customer base,” continues Keziah. Crypton will also be expanding Abercrombie into new markets with cutting-edge designs and product innovation. “Importantly,” adds Keziah, “all of this innovation and expansion means we’ll be positioned to create more jobs for American textile workers.” Keziah will oversee the company and has tapped respected industry veteran, Ernest Benbassat, as the Executive Vice President of Operations. Former Abercrombie owner, John Regan will remain with the company providing continuity, knowledge and sales leadership. “We’re committed to upholding John’s principles for Abercrombie. We plan to continue and expand upon his work, using it as a foundation for innovation while improving the lives of our dedicated employees as we work to win more business,” says Keziah.

CRYPTON® TO LAUNCH NEW COLLECTIONS AT NOVEMBER SHOWTIME A longing for the colors, textures and handcraft of far-off places is the inspiration for Crypton’s new collection of performance upholstery fabrics launching at November’s Showtime. Inspired by Fernweh, or wanderlust, a longing for distant or yet unseen places, the new collection springs from, “a need to feel fresh inspiration, to step out of the ordinary and to taste the exotic,” says Crypton’s new Residential Design Director, Denise Gutierrez. A veteran fabric design professional and professor of Weave Structure at Jefferson University, Gutierrez says the new textiles will offer the disparate pleasures of three distinct themes, a desert OASIS, a vibrant BAZAAR, and a NORDIC retreat. Among Crypton’s new offerings will be a special group of large and all-over jacquard fabrics, woven in North Carolina at Crypton’s newly acquired Abercrombie textile mill. The jacquards were the jumping off point for the Fernweh theme, along with a selection of plains and solids finished in Crypton’s Kings Mountain, NC facility. The Crypton showroom is one of two places where ITA Showtime attendees will find Crypton. North Carolinabased Valdese Weavers, a leading American mill and the exclusive mill partner of Crypton Home Fabric will also be showing a vast array of decorative indoor performance fabrics from its Crypton Home lines. “We’re both grateful for and deeply committed to our exceptional partnership


ITA MEMBER NEWS with Valdese,” said Crypton CEO Lance Keziah. “Their high-quality, American-made Crypton Home textiles and strong reputation with their brand partners in the textile and furniture markets are instrumental in making Crypton Home Fabric a leader in the performance category,” he adds.

DE LEO IS SAVING WASTE AND GIVING BACK During Showtime De Leo will be selling cosmetic bags made of recycled Carousel showroom display fabrics. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Epilepsy Foundation, a cause that is near and dear to their hearts. Those close to the De Leo family know of Craig De Leo’s daughter, Nadia, who has struggled with epilepsy as a complication of cerebral palsy for most of her life. Epilepsy, a neurological disorder characterized by various forms of seizures, leads to a constant struggle in the lives of those afflicted. The Epilepsy Foundation’s mission is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

MILLIKEN NAMES JEFF PRICE EVP OF MILLIKEN OPERATIONS, CHAD MCALLISTER PRESIDENT OF PERFORMANCE & PROTECTIVE TEXTILES DIVISION Milliken & Company, a global diversified manufacturer with specialty chemical, floor covering, healthcare and performance and protective textiles expertise, has named Jeff Price, Executive Vice President of Operations for Milliken & Company. Chad McAllister has been named the successor to Jeff as President of its Performance & Protective Textiles division. Price was tapped to spearhead a new comprehensive corporate function at Milliken, overseeing corporate logistics and sourcing; environmental, health and safety; corporate engineering; global security; and Milliken’s consulting arm, Performance Solutions by Milliken. His impressive and successful 40-year tenure at Milliken includes leading the company’s global Performance & Protective Textiles division as well as serving as general manager of the company’s global airbag and automotive nonwovens business. “Milliken’s legacy of environmental stewardship has always inspired me,” said Price regarding his new responsibilities as Executive Vice President of

Operations at Milliken & Company. “I’m honored to be tasked with further growing sustainability and operational excellence, among other important functions, to broaden the positive impact of our company around the world.” McAllister joined Milliken’s Chemical division in 2001 where he supported many initiatives including international business growth. He went on to hold finance and strategy positions in corporate development and the company’s airbag business. In 2010, McAllister joined the Performance & Protective Textiles division as Chief Financial Officer where his leadership resulted in continued division diversification and growth. “Chad is a strong and proven business leader,” said Cook. “His career accomplishments have uniquely prepared him to lead Milliken’s largest and most diversified division into the future.”

ITA EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION

WINNERS OF THE

VIRGINIA JACKSON DESIGN COMPETITION The mission of the Virginia Jackson Design Competition is simple and constant: to educate and support our future designers. Many textile design students have little or no interaction with our industry unless they are fortunate enough to participate in ITA industry tours or land an internship. They are often taught to create without heed to any particular end use. Recognizing this challenge, the Virginia Jackson Design Competition requires students to consider the furniture applications for their designs.

“My goal has been to be an educator and creative force in color and design direction for our industry. It is important to nurture, foster and introduce new ideas and talents to the ~ Virginia Jackson American home fashions scene.”

Textile Waste Recovery Presentation Area / SMS T-822

Presented by: Susan Inglis, Sustainable Furnishings Council

TUESDAY

Is your company struggling to manage large quantities of samples: at the end of Showtime, in your showroom, in your design studio? The entire industry must address this problem, as textiles are the fastest growing type of waste in US landfills. Join us as we explore what it will take for the residential textiles industry to recover more waste, not only by upcycling scraps for manufacture into smaller articles, but through various systems of recycling: chemical and mechanical. Learn, also, about the related potential savings, for the planet and your own bottom line.
