Bedding suppliers heighten softness, breathability

Companies are combining silk to key materials to yield pieces with increased smoothness and moisture absorption.



  • Enhanced comfort: To improve softness and smoothness, makers are employing cotton mixed with 30 percent silk. Pieces in the material also have increased breathability and moisture absorption, and retain heat well during cold weather. Silk likewise imparts a luxurious appearance. The combination, however, pushes up prices five to 10 times higher than those of pure cotton versions.
  • Matching motifs: Products in traditional patterns, including flowers, plants and geometric shapes, continue to dominate output in the line as these blend easily with different bedroom and home themes.
  • Price projection: The stable cost of cotton and dwindling orders are prompting suppliers to keep quotes at current levels. Some businesses are planning to decrease rates by up to 5 percent in the next half-year to stir demand.
  • Sales forecast: The majority of enterprises anticipate flat income in the months ahead because of the weakening global economy. Others have a bleaker outlook, expecting a 15 to 30 percent drop in overseas revenue.
