Xie Xie Shanghai!

This #textiletuesday, we’re still jet lagged from a week-long trip to Shanghai! Big thanks to Zhang Tao and Wang Tong from the Chinese Council for the Promotion of International Trade in Textiles. They took such good care of us!

Highlights from the trip included: Interior Lifestyle China, a weekend trip to Hangzhou (where Texworld USA Project Manager Diana Ludwig and Market Development Manager Alex d'Archangelo enjoyed 15 minutes of fame while being swarmed by local teenagers eager for a photo opp) and a productive visit/meeting with Apparel Sourcing Exhibitor Zhejiang Karl Necktie… made us want to pop over to the UK and buy up some of the great tie and cufflink giftsets that Karl is producing for NEXT… sigh…maybe next year. 

CONGRATULATIONS to our Messe Frankfurt colleagues in Shanghai and Hong Kong on a hugely successful Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics show; 3,000 exhibitors/an increase of 30% over last year!
