New York — Aussino USA ventured into contemporary tabletop as well as framed art coordinating back to bedding at the recent New York Home Textiles Market.
In terms of newness in home textiles, Aussino presented a 100 percent bamboo program featuring a box-design blanket, 300-count sheet, duvet cover and bath towel. The bamboo blanket will retail for $49.99 while the bath towel is priced at $12.99.
The company also launched a spa towel in 15 colors that is constructed of terry with horizontal velour stripes for a ribbed effect. Embellished towels also include terry and velour, plus fabrics and trims inspired from top-of-bed. About 21 new styles were shown.
