INSTYLE WINS MAJOR EXPORT CONTRACTS



Australian based textile company Instyle Contract Textiles' wall finishes business WOVIN WALL, has secured several major export contracts for its WOVIN WALL products boosting revenues for the INSTYLE group this financial year.

Significant orders totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars have been recently placed for WOVIN WALL products from Singapore, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and WOVIN WALL are currently working on a significant project in Russia.

INSTYLE’s Managing Director Michael Fitzsimons said, “WOVIN WALL has been an Australian export success story. We have supplied products into numerous countries around the world including Hong Kong, USA, New Zealand, Holland, UK, Ireland, Turkey, Spain, Lebanon and the UAE to name a few. In the past, WOVIN WALL has been successful in securing solid export business however recent export projects have seen a surge in the company’s sales this financial year”.

WOVIN WALL has established a significant agent distribution network and has licensed the manufacture of its products in the USA, Canada, South America and South Africa.

In June last year, WOVIN WALL’s Ripple Wall, won “Best New Architectural Product” at NeoCon. NeoCon is the USA’s largest office interior products exhibition and is held in Chicago each year. Also at NeoCon last year INSTYLE’s ilias upholstery collection won the "Best of NeoCon Editor's Choice Award for Textiles".

INSTYLE also markets its textiles through the USA, Singapore and Hong Kong.

The success story of the textiles for INSTYLE has been the LIFE Textiles collection (LIFE being an acronym for Low Impact For the Environment). LIFE Textiles was developed in conjunction with the IWS (International Wool Secretariat) to address all stages of the lifecycle and uses EthEco wool as the major raw material.

EthEco stands for the ethical treatment of animals, human health and care for the environment.

LIFE Textiles is designed to minimise its impact on the environment and its specification builds upon the EU Flower Ecolabel and Cradle to Cradle design principles. INSTYLE’s LIFE Textiles collection has been certified to the European Union’s EU Flower Ecolabel - an eco label that you can genuinely trust.
