This year edition has been important to DOMOTEX Asia/CHINAFLOOR that, due to increasing demand, on its 21th anniversary expanded to 175,000 sqm and 15 halls.
As well as in Hannover, in Shanghai Aquafil created a colorful and cozy booth around the concept “Good design begins with the end in mind” and its commitment toward a circular economy.
From March 26 to 28, Aquafil showcased new products and trends in the Chinese floor covering industry and provided a look at its first carpet recycling plant, inaugurated last year in the United States in Phoenix, Arizona.
Its sustainable process was explained by means of an illustrative installation that made many customers curious and interested in getting further details about it.
With more than 100 sqm booth, Aquafil showcased up to 60 new textile samples, more than half made with ECONYL® yarn, divided into 4 areas: contract, residential, rugs, and hospitality.
The carpet floor was realized by one of Aquafil’s Japanese customer and distributed by Kawashima. It was a carpet tile made with ECONYL® yarn, 3 ply air entangled.
The booth also featured a corner dedicated to interior design with beautiful interior design elements such as one luxurious and high-quality rug made by B.I.C. Carpets and three unique and exclusive Couture Poufs by Lorenza Bozzoli – an Italian interior designer – all made with ECONYL® yarn.
And not to mention, some of the latest branded garments were shown in a dedicated window:
– the wedding dress by H&M Conscious Collection,
– the Pacific Collection sunglasses by Karun and,
– the new carry solution by PacSafe®.
Many customers from China, Japan, Thailand, Australia, and Korea went over Aquafil’s booth and got the chance to sit down and discuss current and future business with Aquafil’s team from the Asia Pacific and Aquafil’s Management team from Europe.
