Playthings Staff -- Gifts & Dec, March 29, 2004
Fiber technology enhancements made a showing in a variety of products on display at the New York Home Textiles Show, which opened Friday at the Jacob Javits center.
Among the offerings were:
"Hydro" aloe vera bedding from Downtown Co. Sheets and pillowcases are constructed from cotton and aloe vera and release billions of aloe vera molecules that hydrate the skin without moistening it.
The "Smart Throw" from Huntingdon Home which is treated with an anti-odor fragrance that releases microbeads of scent when the chenille-like fabric is rubbed. Made of a blend of acrylic and polyester, the throws are also anti-microbial, stain resistant and flame retardant.
The "Ceiba" Pillow, a naturally hypoallergenic pillow from Desalon that is filled with "silk" from ceiba tree pods.
Sea Cell bedding from Curt Bauer features bed linens woven from a blend of cotton, lyco cell and seaweed that revitalize the skin during sleep.
