I have attended the fair earlier and because of my experience at working with India and manufacturers here for soft goods, many companies back in US have been asking for my assistance in connecting with Indian manufacturers. So I am trying to be the connector of US to India. There is always a positive intent and effort behind designs in India, along with purity of making things work and space for determination for amendments and I totally love it.
I have my own brand and am also a supplier for retailers in USA. I am also into product development. Here I am looking for textiles, floor coverings and other textiles related products. I have been in trade with Indian suppliers earlier as well and have been in this show once before. I import 100% of my products from India. I find Indian manufacturers extremely innovative.
At our company, Gardeco, we deal in outdoor products. We have already been buying outdoor rugs and mats from India. Here, I see kind of materials which I can use both indoors and outdoors. I quite like the fair too.
I am founder and CEO of Sack Me. Our company sells home décor and textiles. I visit EPCH shows for something new and not too flashy and yet happy. I am in love with Indian craftwork and appreciate the time that goes into creating them. Indian handicrafts are in high demand in Australia.
Products that we are interested in are textiles and handicrafts which are made up of cotton and jute. There are sellers that we have premeditated upon before coming to this fair. They are from Chennai and Mumbai. The fair has been great. We take 20% of our imports from India.
This is the very first time I am attending an EPCH fair. I really liked it as it is very interesting, the way it includes various product segments. Basically I am looking for home textiles. I also saw beautiful home decor products which could be of interest to our customers back home.
Mine is an e-Commerce company, called Re:Home. I am here for curtains, carpets, pillow covers and other fabric products. I have to this fair five times before. Apart from India, I also trade from Vietnam and China. The facilities provided to us are convenient.
