HEIMTEXTIL 2016. Part III. Europe: trendy & luxury
We continue our in-depth review of the novelties from Frankfurt am Main.
02.03.2016, Стиль и цвет
In our third detailed review, we present our readers with the novelties from European manufacturers.

European producers and editors can justly be regarded as the Haute Couture of the textile world. Year in and year out, they infuse the global industry with the most novel designs and stylistic directions, unconventional texture combinations and superbly executed classics. They are, and will certainly remain in the near future the undisputed trendsetters in the textile field. In the current article, we are going to review the most interesting European fabrics we have discovered at the Heimtextil 2016.

Fuggerhaus (Germany)

Hans Fugger, the founding father of the Fugger family, was an ordinary weaver from the village of Graben, who, in 1367, has moved to the city of Augsburg, where he has entered the weaver’s guild.

The modern history of the FUGGERHAUS begins with the year 1954. Its first factory, founded by Kurt Nill, specialized solely on the development, manufacturing and realization of high-quality interior fabrics of exclusive, classical and contemporary design. Over the course of its 60-year history, the factory has continuously evolved, absorbing a significant number of fashionable and promising European manufacturers into its structure —the trademarks of Indes, VOLLAND, TULIPAN, Label One and ARCHITECTS PAPER were all independent companies at some point in time.

At the expo, we had an opportunity to meet with one of the chief designers of the company’s new collection—a young and contemporary woman, who dedicates a lot of her professional time to travelling around the world. We find that to be consistent with the fact, that FUGGERHAUS’s 2016 collection is completely up-to-date on all the latest trends exposed at the current expo. Today, the company’s collection includes over 5000 items of fabric, all of which are available to length.

Among the favorites of this year’s collection are the color pallets of copper and rust. Other notable novelties include:
– light fabrics with downy raised textures and metallic sheen of silver and copper;
– marble texture realized in jacquard fabrics;
– blurry, abstract designs on light fabrics;
– novelties in the company’s classical line: bright floristic designs embroidered on silk, classical monograms.

Acquitaine (United Kingdom)

Acquitane develops original designs, which are then transferred on British-made cotton and linen fabrics through traditional printing techniques. The company is fairly young (10 years old), yet has already developed a good reputation on the European and American markets.

Debbie Hill, the founder and chief designer of the company, was kind enough to tell us a little about Acquitane and its new collection. She draws inspiration from archival designs, fine arts and the everyday beauty of ordinary and simple things. The company’s current collection is executed in a characteristically English style—floristic motifs, oriental themes, a joyful yet simultaneously calm color pallet. All these aspects unite into a product that fits into a large variety of interiors.
