ABSTRACT
This article reports that contract business, especially in the hospitality segment, is driving sales for many decorative fabrics converters and mills in 2005. The top-of-bed business, until recently a major segment of fabric supplier revenues, has dropped because of direct imports by the bedding suppliers as well as retailers. In other cases, the fabric houses have initiated programs that provide either fabrics and/or the finished products for the bedding and window coverings suppliers. Export for some fabric companies is showing gains, in some cases because of the dollar's value in relation to the Euro and other currencies; in other instances because of renewed efforts on the part of the companies.
