After four dreamy and absolutely fun days in Istanbul, I’m back with full of stories, discoveries and lots of photos.
As you may or may not know, Istanbul was on my travel list for a couple while and as I’m continuing to learn that things do happen, one way or another, the Evteks Home Textiles Exhibition not only gave me the chance to discover a bunch of dreamy brands, that I wasn’t aware of, but to fall in love with the city and it’s one of a kind vibe also. Enough about Istanbul, let’s get to the decor part.
Evteks is one of the largest exhibitions of its kind in Europe and Turkey’s home textile sector ranks first in Europe.
The majority of buyers being from US, Germany & England. The fair covers a wide range of products from curtains & draperies, there were soooo many, upholstery, loungewear, bedspreads and many, many textile items.
There was a also a very interesting trend area on which colours, prints & fabrics will be in demand next seasons. Will talk about it soon.
Now, I would like to share a couple of snaps from the fair, taken with my phone, of exhibitors that caught my attention. I’ll post individually about some of them. A couple are Turkish brands and some are international, as the fair is open to both local & international brands.
