Exhibitors will showcase an array of durable, eye-catching craftwork made of natural fiber and metal.
Home textiles and furnishings will be among the major highlights of the India Sourcing Fair: Home Products, which will be held from Oct. 20 to 23 at the AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong. Displays at the four-day affair comprise models from New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and other manufacturing and trading hubs.
With India being a mainstay of the global coir industry, textiles made of the natural fiber are expected to be among the most-prominent categories at the fair. Mats and rugs will be available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, weaves, patterns and colors for outdoor and indoor applications. Adding more variety to the selection are models backed with natural rubber or vinyl.
Collections of fabric-based products at the specialized sourcing event will include cotton quilts as well. Among those expected to be showcased are patchwork and block constructions. Single-color and multihued designs adorned with prints, embroidery and applique will be on display.
Visitors can also try out beach totes, backpacks and other types of bags in environment-friendly jute, as well as cotton. Selections for different leisure activities comprise pieces in diverse prints and hues. Buyers can choose from an array of handles to complement designs.
In metal crafts, another anticipated attraction, stainless steel cookware such as Dutch ovens, round and oval roasters, stockpots, sauce pans and woks are set to take centerstage. Lidded bowls and canisters, fruit baskets and tools such as cutlery, bottle openers, tongs, spatulas and ladles will also be displayed.
Apart from home textiles and furnishings, exhibits at the specialized sourcing event will include outdoor and patio furniture, glassware, kitchenware, and recreation and leisure goods.
The India Sourcing Fair: Home Products runs concurrently with the China Sourcing Fair: Gifts & Premiums, China Sourcing Fair: Baby & Children's Products and China Sourcing Fair: Home Products.
