Established in 1995, Decowin Textile specialises in the design and production of a wide range of blinds made of woven fabric and polyester. About 20-30% of our products are sold domestically with the rest exported to North America, Europe, the Middle East, India and South America. This is our first participation in Hong Kong International Home Furnishings and Textiles Fair to expand our sales in the region. The responses have been excellent. We’ve met so many potential customers from different places including Hong Kong, Peru, Brazil, New Zealand, Australia, Italy and India. Three buyers from Hong Kong, Australia and India have expressed serious interests and we anticipate that they will place orders after further negotiations. But it will usually take at least six months to develop business relationships with new customers.”

In business for 40 years, Galileo is one of the biggest importers of household products in Italy with an annual turnover of about €100 million. We have been visiting Hong Kong International Home Furnishings and Textiles Fair as Hong Kong Houseware Fair for many years. The Hong Kong fairs are always great places to find new ideas and interesting products. We are looking for a variety of home items including bedding, cushions and mats this year. So far, we’ve found a couple of new suppliers from India for a selection of mats. Initial orders were also placed for fragrance sets with several exhibitors. We are still looking around for more products. We expect to spend US$500,000 or more for different items this time. The two fairs are really important trade events for our sourcing every year.”

It may take another four to five months to finalise the specific product lines we want for business development. Initial orders will be usually about US$10,000 for each product line. This is a very nice fair. We’re pleased with what we’ve found here.”

I’ve also looked around for interesting offerings such as trays, cutting boards, garden accessories and ice buckets in Hong Kong Houseware Fair. I will discuss with my colleagues in USA for various items to select the best products and make orders. The exhibition in Hong Kong can really help our sourcing and that’s why we keep coming back. We can always find new suppliers here every year to develop new product categories.”
