The 24th edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles proved itself as the leading home textile trade fair in Asia
170,000 sqm exhibition space
1,092 exhibitors from 26 countries
41,000 buyers from over 104 countries
The Australian Alpaca Bedding Company, a subsidiary of Kelly & Windsor Australia, exhibited again at the Autumn 2018 edition of the Intertextile fair in Shanghai and what a great fair.
In the last five years that we have been exhibiting at this fair, I have noticed the significant increase in exhibitor and visitor numbers which confirms its status as Asia's leading home textile fairs. Its a very high profile show, not just for China and the region, but the whole world. Its a must visit event if you are in the home textile business.
We busy for the four days and often the stand was completely full of visitors with multiple meetings going on at once. We had over one hundred contacts from China, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, USA, Canada and Europe.
Of primary interest was the Australian Alpaca quilt collections which were very popular. We sold all of the stand display samples in the first few hours on day one!
The stand visitors were a mix distributors, on line Chinese retailers and indent agents who were very interested to discuss multiple trading and distribution opportunities.
While the Bedding section of the fair, which covers a wide range of home textile products, was quite small it gave us a great opportunity to showcase the brand and meet many promising contacts for future growth of the business into Asia.
The fair was a great success and we loved visiting Shanghai, what an exciting and vibrant city.Buy K&W products direct from manufacturer & save!

I noticed a Facebook post last weekend "who owns Kelly & Windsor Australia?" Is it really an Australian owned business?
We are a 100% owned Australian owned and operated business. The ownership of the company is on the pubic records and we extensively use the Australian made and Owned logo under a licence agreement with The Australia Made Campaign.
Despite the challenges of the Covid pandemic, we have maintained full manufacturing and shipping operations since the initial out break. We are actually struggling to met demand for our luxurious Australian Made bedding collections.
We have instigated strict Covid Safe Policies and Practices and are prepared to offer full support to staff who may be effected in these difficult times.
We were on TVSN with our Alpaca Gold 400 winter quilts and pillows with two shows in June which were both sold out.
These shows were the first time featuring our finest pure Alpaca Gold quilts and despite not being able to be in the studio in person, the shows were a great success with repeat orders required to fill customer back orders.
