The London Textile Fair (TLTF) brings together around 500 of the mostly prestigious European mills, with a complete overview of the season’s trends. The show offers to professional buyers a sourcing platform with a large variety of products for fashion textiles, accessories, print design and vintage garments.
The London Textile Fair (TLTF) is the leading industry exhibition within the UK, presenting fashion fabrics, accessories, print design and vintage garments. The show is held biannually (January – September) at the Business Design Centre and it counts around 500 mostly European exhibitors at each edition
TLTF concept is very simple: we provide each exhibitor with a single stand, chairs, table cloth, rails and a sign. We ensure that each and every exhibitor is promoted equally in this way and we don’t allow big banners on the floor. Whether a large or a small manufacturer, the modular format of single tables offers an equal opportunity for all.
All tables are selected via a lottery so there is no possibility of ordering a better position “it’s pot luck”. However, we are able within the lottery to put mills together with their agents, when this is possible. We extend this ethos to advertising and we produce an exhibition brochure where we don’t allow advertisement from exhibitors.
This simple system reflects the unbelievably low cost for a fair of this importance and our very strict ethos that all exhibitors should be on a level playing field.
The majority of our visitors are from the UK (about 90%) and comprise of some of the most influential buyers and designers from the major high-street retail stores as well as independent designers and buyers from their contract manufacturers. TLTF attracts designers, buyers and product developers who come not only to maintain existing relationships but work also to source and develop new and exciting products. Being in Central London, not only is the fair extremely convenient for all our customers but it provides a fantastic opportunity to find inspirational, relevant and directional collections.
