The country of Turkey invites attendees to “Discover the Potential” of all their country has to offer in the Turkey Country Lounge & Pavilion where both the cultural and artistic values of the heritage-rich nation will be showcased. Attendees will be able to closely examine their fabrics through the Turkish Trend Forum, enjoy tastes of Turkish cuisine and participate in a sweepstakes giveaway on Friday.

Take a break from the hustle of the day and relax in the Inner-City Arts lounge curated by LA Textile x Inner-City Arts. Learn more about this incredible arts school located in the heart of DTLA. Get a glimpse inside the world of these young creators through beautiful hand stamped textiles designed and created on campus.
Explore and personally shop a showcase of textiles and textures from local artisans and creatives. This new cash & carry area in the 9th Street Plaza is hosted by Findings Market, a pop-up experience highlighting a carefully curated collection of emerging and inspiring brands. From woven rugs to block print textiles and leather goods, you never know what gem you’ll find... and your purchase will support shopping small and local business. 

LA Textile is proud to present "Suspended Above the Confines of Color" an interpretive look at the majestic landscape of renowned fabric designer and creative house, Malhia Kent.  Color, just like Malhia Kent, is nothing if not audacious, creative and responsive.  Each season prior to the lights, the stages and the crowds swarming outside of designer presentations lie the bold decisions of color and fabric.  These beautiful confines are suspended in air months prior to the creation's form, yet they guide each and every step with finality.

Witness textile block printing in action in the middle of the LA Textile show floor. Art Creators LA will be demonstrating the latest techniques in block printing for textiles, showing the process of creating artwork and creating multiple motifs to create a repeat seamless pattern by hand.
