louder than words
Posting a year-on-year rise of 10%, Turkey’s export figures hit
an all-time high July figure of $16.4 billion. The 12-month rolling
export figure in July exceeded $200 billion for the first time
in Turkey’s history and reached $201.5 billion.
The country’s imports also surged 17% to $20.7 billion in the
same period. Turkish imports jumped 26% on an annual basis
to $146.8 billion in the first seven months of this year.
In January-July, exports totaled $121.4 billion, surging 35%
from the same period last year.
If we compare the seven-month figure with the pre-pandemic
period (January-July 2019), this also posted a 16.4% increase.
The exports/imports coverage ratio went up 5.6 percentage
points to 82.7% during the same period, the minister said.
The country’s foreign trade deficit narrowed 5% to $25.5 billion
in January-July. These were all announced by Mehmet Mus,
Trade Minister of Turkey.
The home textile industry used the digital marketing and sales
channels to stand in the pandemic period but it is now standing
up with physical fairs and meetings. Supported by reinforced
digital marketing, the industry will perform better then the
pre-pandemic period once the disease is completely vanished.

Just days after the summer solstice, the
nationwide retailer has noted a growing
demand for hotel-style blackout curtains.
Light-sleepers use them to avoid being
woken up at dawn and they are also popular
among shift workers and for children’s
bedrooms. Julian Charles Rachel Foley
head of product buying and brand said:
“We all love summer, but not everyone
wants to be woken up in the early hours
by the sun peeping through the curtains.
“A good night’s sleep is important for
our health and blackout curtains can really
help. Hotels have known about this
for years, but there’s no reason why you
can’t enjoy the benefits at home too.”

The plans for the coming
Heimtextil are being drawn
up against the background
of an optimistic perspective
for 2022. A promising
number of registrations
and a positive echo from
the sector are encouraging
signals for the restart in
The sector is raring to go and yearning
for a return to the international
stage. Personal discussions, physical
product presentations and valuable
inspiration – the call for an international and
multifaceted meeting place for the sector is
loud and clear seven months before the next
scheduled edition of the trade fair. At present,
the falling corona infection rates, as well
as the associated moves to relax restrictions
and open up businesses, offer good reason
for optimism at home and abroad. “At last,
we can see light at the end of the tunnel. And,
although this is no reason for euphoria, it
gives us a solid ground for taking a positive
approach. We have excellent contacts to our
international customers who have expressed
a great need for personal encounters, a direct
exchange of information and new impressions”,
says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President
Textiles & Textile Technologies, Messe
Frankfurt. This is also reflected by the reassuringly
high number of registrations already
received after more than a year of pandemic
and with seven months still to go before the
leading trade fair for home and contract textiles
opens its doors again. Thus, around 80
percent of exhibitors at Heimtextil 2020 are
interested in taking part in the coming edition
of the fair.
Trend Space: tomorrow’s furnishing trends
For visitors interested in design, the highlight of
the programme of events in 2022 will once again
be the Trend Space inspiration area in Hall 4.0.
The coming edition will show how the pandemic
has changed our lives and, therefore, the way we
furnish our homes. In this connection, particular
attention will be given to the mega subject of
‘new work’, which will be viewed with new facets.
As in the past, the director of the Trend Space is
Anja Bisgaard Gaede and her team from SPOTT
Trends & Business.

PlushBeds wins Good Housekeeping
2021 Bedding Awards for
“Best Mattress Topper”
Luxurious wool topper wins prestigious recognition for comfort,
materials, and performance. PlushBeds is honored
to announce that our Handmade Natural Wool Mattress
Topper has been selected as a winner in the Good Housekeeping
2021 Bedding Awards.
To pick the winners, Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab
scientists, home editors, and more than 100 sleep testers evaluated
9,847 data points. PlushBeds Handmade Natural Wool
Topper was singled out among other wool toppers for its soft
pillow-top comfort, sustainability, and natural temperature-regulating
Natural wool has a dense, plush texture that springs back night
after night. Unlike synthetic fillers, wool wicks away humidity and
maintains a “just right” temperature all night long. For added
breathability, this topper is covered in a cooling organic cotton
cover. Evaluators “were wowed” by the topper’s materials, and
testers noted that it alleviated back pain as well. “It was like a
body hug,” one Good Housekeeping tester explained.
“Many Americans don’t get enough pressure relief from their
mattress,” commented Michael Hughes, CEO of PlushBeds.
“Often, they also toss and turn because their sleep surface is
made from synthetic materials that trap heat and moisture. This
luxurious topper solves both issues, naturally.”
PlushBeds Handmade Natural Wool Topper is crafted in the USA
from cruelty-free natural, virgin wool, and GOTS-certified organic
cotton. It is free from harmful chemicals and naturally inhibits
allergens, so even the most sensitive sleepers can enjoy the
comfort of all-natural wool bedding.

How did you enter the industry and how is your
journey going now? I want to know your plans and
Our activities started in 1972 with the purchase and
sale of yarn in a 12 square meter store. The paint carvings
of the country, Özen Boyahanesi, was established
in Istanbul on an area of 1000 m² in Esenyurt. In this
process, our company produced mercerized yarn and
moved to the workshop in Istanbul Bayrampasa, in an
area of 3000 square meters, in 1980 to promote the
production of nylon sewing yarn for the leather industry.
In 1990, we added high-strength polyester sewing
yarn to our product line. Our main target in 1997 was
to head towards world markets. In this context, we
participate in international fairs and attach great importance
to our R&D activities. In 2003, we established a
factory on an area of 14.000 square meters in Istanbul
Kıraç. After the factory investments were completed,
we opened our companies and warehouses in Russia
in 2014 and in America in 2017.
Thus, we started to serve our customers in the region.
In 2021, we decided to invest in a new machinery with
an additional building of 5000 m2 due to the needs in
the market. We will continue to serve our customers
with new investments and great concentration.
Could you please give information about your
production capacity and product range? I’m also
curious about your usage areas.
We increase our production capacity by 35% in all our
units with our new investments. The sewing yarn we
produce is used in many areas. We offer our products
to our customers in many areas from bedding to furniture,
from ready-to-wear to leather saddlery, from automotive
What are your most demanded products?
Our polyester sewing yarn polyart brand is our most demanded
product. On the other hand, we have a very
wide product range for the 32 brands we have produced.
All of our sewing yarns are in demand by our customers.
What do you think about R&D and innovation?
Do you follow the developments closely?
Machine manufacturers are always following the
developments. We are also striving to make progress
in R&D and innovation. In these matters, we
can be solution partners with other companies in
the sector. We are one of the companies that are
always open to development and follow the changes
in the sector. Our main goal is to accurately express
these developments to our customers’ employees.
We are trying to benefit the production of
How do you supply raw materials?
In terms of raw materials, we have many business
partners in the world. We make our supplies from
these companies. We have set our quality standards
and we have very good relationships with
our raw material suppliers. At the same time, we
work with our business partners to improve our
What do you think are the factors that make
your products different? I would like to get
your thoughts on this matter.
There are many factors that make our products
different. We add appropriate features to our products
and offer them to the industry. We do not sell
our products, which we sell to the textile industry,
to the furniture industry. In addition, we are in constant
communication with our customers to establish
good relations with them. Thus, we become
their solution partner. We do not do price-based
marketing. We always offer service diversity to our
customers. Such matters are very important to us.
How many countries do you export to? Also,
what is the ratio of your exports to your total
We are a company serving 4 continents. We export
to 58 countries. In addition, the ratio of our exports
to our total sales is 54%.
What are your biggest goals in the industry?
Our biggest goal is to deliver our products to our
customers on time. We want to serve our consumers
with the highest quality and at the best possible
price. Customer satisfaction is our biggest goal. In
2023, we will establish a second production line
abroad. In this direction, our research continues
for the right location. We continue to receive support

the baby room selection is one of the things that mothers
with babies and expectant mothers think about most. Families
who want to create a living space for their baby that is warm,

wide drawers of the dresser create more space for clean
baby clothes and belongings. The light-toned colors and
foot detailed design of the set give the room a very elegant
and chic look.

Alice Baby Room Set also meets the European TÜV ISO
9001 quality standard. The collection adds a peaceful
atmosphere to your baby’s room, with its simple design
that evokes spaciousness and fairytale-like features.
The Pantone Colour
Institute has revealed its
colour of the year for
2021 and this year,
there are two!
Illuminating’ a bright
and cheerful yellow and
5104 Ultimate Gray’
emblematic of pebbles on
the beach and natural
Pantone describes these as “The union of an enduring
Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow Illuminating expresses
a message of positivity supported by fortitude.
Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic,
this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and
hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted, this is essential
to the human spirit.”
These colours are reflected in a wide range of blinds and curtains
from the UK’s largest online made-to-measure window dressing
retailer, Blinds 2go, who have put together a range of styles
that beautifully express this upcoming trend. Both Pantone colours
are captured in the stunning Watercolour Stripe Ochre
Roman Blind from the Clarissa Hulse range, pairing a mustard
ochre tone with a sleek grey to fit this trend perfectly.
Also delivering both these stylish hues in one blind is the classic
William Morris Willow Bough Gold design from Blinds 2go,
in collaboration with the V&A. This superb mix of exquisite design
and vibrant intertwining leaves really brings this design to
life. Both styles are also available as roller blinds and curtains.
For a more modern take on this look there is the Nuevo
Dandelion design from the Scion collection (shown as Curtains
but also available as Roman and Roller Blinds). The bold, interlocking
shapes bring an air of cubism to this design as well
as offering a great interpretation of the hottest new Pantone
colours. As well as designs which capture both these stunning
colours in one, there are a wide range of blinds and curtains
expressing the individual colours. Here is a selection of
styles, each of which beautifully communicate Ultimate Gray or
Illuminating and offer a simple and affordable way to introduce
these Pantone colours into your home.

Jan. 2021 /PRNewswire/ A whopping 70% of adults in
the U.S. claim that they receive an insufficient amount of
sleep. With recent studies revealing a strong link between
sleep and strengthening the immune system, and the CDC
deeming sleep disorders a public health epidemic, better
sleep is projected to be a top trend of 2021.
Coining 2021 as “The Year of Healthy Sleep,” Naturepedic,
GOTS-certified organic, MADE SAFE- certified nontoxic,
mattress and bedding brand is focusing on changing the
paradigm for what this means.
“While many of us might acknowledge that sleep is essential
to good health, there is still a lack of understanding
that this goes beyond healthy sleep rituals. Sleeping on
certified organic, nontoxic materials is a key piece to the
puzzle for achieving good health and better sleep,” comments
Barry A. Cik, Environmental Engineer, Founder and
Technical Director of Naturepedic.
“By opting for certified organic, nontoxic mattress and
bedding products, consumers are avoiding unnecessary
exposure to questionable materials and chemicals found
in most conventional mattresses. Many mattresses and
bedding products are increasingly being linked to health
issues and risks, particularly for babies and kids as they
grow and develop.” Cik adds, “Moreover, not only do these
materials help regulate body temperature while sleeping,
an important factor in boosting sleep quality, but knowing
that you’re sleeping on sheets, pillows, and a mattress
that is designed for healthy sleep can positively impact
your ability to unwind at night.”
“When I became educated on the differences between a
Naturepedic Organic Mattress and the memory foam mattress
I had been sleeping on for years, I ditched my memory
foam mattress and ordered a Naturepedic Organic
Mattress. It was one of the best decisions I made for my
mental & physical health. I’ve experienced deeper restful
sleep and have peace of mind knowing my Naturepedic
Organic Mattress is safe and doesn’t have unpleasant
& questionable off-gassing odors and toxic chemicals
like my old mattress. Blue Cure thanks Naturepedic for
making healthier products without harmful chemicals,”
states Gabe Canales; Founder & President, Blue Cure

“By choosing a mattress that eliminates hazardous chemicals
found in conventional mattresses, while offering a
more natural and non-toxic alternative, you’ll set yourself
on the path to healthier sleep in 2021,” states Cik, “We

to better understand how to achieve this now and
