LOS ANGELES — Exhibitors preparing for next week’s Los Angeles International Textile Show are set to show a kaleidoscope of colors.

  • Black-and-white fabrics and polkadot prints will be key at Fabricland LA.

  • Impala Industries plans to show exotic knits in jacquards and open weaves and whimsical prints.

  • Along with its signature retro florals and modish geometrics, Robert Kaufman Co. will promote its Western yarn-dyes with metallic fiber details and a new program of canvas fabrics in natural tones with a sueded finish for bottoms.

  • Deep-dye rayons, creating two-tone effects, are a new push at M&M Industries.

  • Higher-end burnouts in silk, satin and velvet are the of-the-moment looks at Textile Secrets International.

  • Fabrics are getting fancier at Hal Kaltman Textiles, where corduroy features animal prints and velvet is enlivened with geometrics. Whatever the fabric, stretch is a must, Kaltman said.
“Stretch is strong…if it has it, they want to buy it,” he said.
