Heimtextil 2015 (held January 14-17 in Frankfurt, Germany) hosted about 2,800 exhibitors and 68,000 visitors.

According to Debbie McKeegan, Designer and Owner of Digetex, this year’s trends include recycled vintage designs—and with readily available digital printing, designers are now going beyond photo printing creations and into painterly effects and overlaid photos in their designs. Additionally, fashion and interiors are merging with catwalk designs appearing in home textiles.
