Textillery Weavers Preps Lines for High Point
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, February 23, 2009
Spring blue, wasabi green, pastel plaids, menswear-inspired textured and tonal tweeds, along with bamboo in colorful twills will make Textillery Weavers' fashion statement this spring at the upcoming High Point Market.
Eco-friendly trends will take the forefront.
"We're finding that customers are taking the eco-friendly movement seriously," said head designer Judith Rose. "They want to know that the products they buy — and the companies behind them — are environmentally friendly from start to finish."
Textillery's "On the Waterfront" collection features a spring blue palette meant to evoke tranquility and peace, she said. New products include: a mid-weight variegated twill bamboo throw — 73% bamboo and 27% cotton — finished with a two-inch fringe; a lightweight 100% rayon chenille plaid throw with a ribbed accent and finished with a six-inch fringe; and a lightweight 100% rayon chenille plaid throw with six-inch fringe.
With the wasabi green palette that has been accented with neutral tones, Textillery hopes to catch the eye of earth-minded consumers. "Our increasing eco-consciousness is still fueling the popularity of green tones, and I think brighter wasabi greens will continue to be popular in 2009 and beyond," said Rose.
New products made in wasabi green include: a lightweight 100% rayon chenille plaid throw with mid-weight ribbed accent and finished with a six-inch fringe; a mid-weight bamboo-and-cotton throw finished with a rolled hem; and a lightweight cotton-and-rayon textured throw finished with a six-inch fringe.
A new assortment of "pretty pink" and pastel plaids, Rose said, is a spring-specific design message. Included are several rayon chenille throw styles, some of them also employing the wasabi color.
New bamboo twill throws offer "warm, silky and luxurious new designs in colors that also respond well to today's design directions," she said.
Textillery Weavers' High Point showroom is in space 408 at the International Home Furnishings Center.
