Across the globe, three of the biggest home textile trends right now are the use of green fibres, recycling, and using more technical fabrics for enhanced health and comfort. In Vietnam, one of the largest textile importers in the world, rising urbanisation, emerging young consumers, and higher disposable incomes are interrelated factors driving growth.

To help industry players access the country’s steadily expanding textile market, the inaugural Vietnam International Trade Fair for Apparel, Textiles and Textile Technologies (VIATT) will take place in Ho Chi Minh City from 28 February to 1 March 2024. Hundreds of home textiles exhibitors representing seven nations and regions will present their most recent offerings at the show, which include bedding, upholstery fabrics, curtains, and sun protection.
