Our recent trip to Shanghai was truly amazing. Walking the Bund and Huaihai Road, we marveled at the contrasts of this exotic and modern city. Chic window displays and sophisticated street style. Colonial architecture next to sleek high-rises. A melting pot of artists, designers, and architects choosing Shanghai as their creative hub. Design inspiration was everywhere!
We attended the Intertextile Shanghai 2014, Asia's leading home textile event, and one of the largest in the world. With over 1500 exhibitors from 31 different countries, it was an almost overwhelming display of new ideas and techniques in transfer printing, foil printing, weaving, design themes, and color trends. Our trips into factories confirmed just why Shanghai will be a major resource for us. So many capabilities through traditional techniques combined with new technology.
As is customary in Shanghai, where everything, including taxis, say ‘thank you’, we are grateful to you for joining us on our journey. We can’t move fast enough to share our discoveries with you. Thank you for the inspiration you bring to our vision for 14K!
