Director, Mr. Carlos Costa says
“These companies coming to the Hotel & Office Show are in a favorable position to practice a development strategy for the Portuguese markets due to the fact that Dubai is the region’s platform of support to the local economic block. Furthermore, it is an incentive for the companies to actually have the opportunity to interface directly with the market’s decision makers in the business, as a form of consolidating the companies’ market expansion.”
Home Textiles and Fabrics will be making a strong statement with the participation of 10 companies featuring their multi purpose weaves for every hotel’s needs in this year’s Portuguese participation of the Hotel Show.
From soft cottons to silky satins, from terrys to linens, aromatized threads and environmental friendly dyes are used when making these high quality products, all natural fibers sometimes as high as a 1,500 thread count. Equally innovative are the hypoallergenic treatments for these threads in the weaving of fabrics for use in hospitals and schools.
The ‘Hotel Concept’ brand (AAF Group) creates personalized lines for hospitality in – city, business, resort and ecotourism themes. They also bring specifically treated fibers. The new viscous fibers outlast most due to its thermoregulative function, bioactive sea cells that treat the skin while you sleep, are all made from natural fibers extracted from seaweeds and silver ions, which in contact with the skin, release carbohydrates , amino acids, vitamins and minerals, eventually penetrating into the bloodstream. As if this weren’t enough innovation, they still have other lines like the ‘Dri-Release’ with dry fast, non-iron, and anti-odor characteristics, the ‘Trevisa-CS’ as a flame retardant fabric, and the ‘Trevira-CS BA’ which combines flame retardant characteristics with bioactive features.
The ‘Atmosphere’ collection (Castros & Marques Lda.) blends textures for comfort and tranquility. A sense of coziness and reestablishment combined with aesthetics is the success story for ‘Atmosphere’.
Still we have Neiper with yet another department devoted exclusively to the development of new designs and products. It is specially committed to follow costumer’s needs in this increasingly important area, and were one of the first companies to introduce new fibres like bamboo, cashmere, natural linen, etc. in terry towels. All products are produced in state of the art machinery, which allows Neiper to be amongst the first to introduce new techniques.
Innovative technology is an integral value of today’s Portuguese mills, succeding in making Portugal is the first European home textile exporter and the 2nd worldwide.
All these companies will be ready to articulate response samples to all their customers.
Outdoor and indoor tables and chairs for the hospitality business are standard built in a variety of frames to choose from, yet ultimately customized to detailed requirement in color, finish, upholstery, to meet the concept of the most meticulous designer. Woods, resins and steel worked through the latest technologies enables these companies to provide a range of products with a very small environmental impact.
