The article presents information on the trend followed by the publishers of the newspaper Home Textiles Today. It worked to cover fashion trends as well as the business side of the home textiles industry. It was an era when bedspreads had not completely given way to comforters, the second most popular color for towels after white was brown, and matchy-matchy as a coordinate concept was considered desirable. Although geometries had begun bleeding over from apparel into home, the prevailing theme in textiles was decidedly floral.
