The article reports on the 2006 Los Angeles International Textile Show in Los Angeles, California. Vendors exhibiting at the show emphasized novel fabrics for spring 2007 and improved customer service in an effort to stand out in a competitive market. Exhibiting at the semiannual trade show for the first time were a number of foreign companies seeking to establish a West Coast presence, some of which are also opening offices in Southern California. Ellebi Italia, a vendor of linen blends used to make scarves and Berto AG, an Italian denim specialist, both opened offices in Los Angeles in April 2006. Emphasizing novel fabrics is the only way to survive against low-priced, high-volume competitors from China, said Matteo Mauri, U.S. manager for Duemilagori's New York office.
