Debuting August 2012, SOURCING at MAGIC HOME brought the international home textiles supply chain to North America’s most comprehensive sourcing show. With the launch of SOURCING at MAGIC’s dedicated new space, the interior textiles and décor market has finally found a HOME. Debuting at MAGICs August 2012 forum, SOURCING at MAGIC HOME represents a major cooperation between MAGIC, the industry’s foremost fashion trade event, and China Foreign Trade Guangzhou Exhibition General Corp. (CFTE), one of Chinas major exhibition organizations.
This exciting initiative will unite the fashion and home communities to address North America’s mounting demand for manufactured home goods and textiles. Situated at the heart of SOURCING at MAGIC, the alliance will feature fabrics, materials and components for home application (bed, bath and kitchen linens, towels, window treatments, rugs and accessories) – providing sourcing professionals with direct access to hundreds of premier domestic and international manufacturers.
According to SOURCING at MAGIC Vice President, Karalynn Sprouse, “SOURCING at MAGIC HOME builds on the sourcing expertise of MAGIC and showcased both the broad base of Chinese manufacturers CFTE brings, as well as contract and original design manufacturers, component suppliers, and service providers from the global home textiles community as a whole.
