Industry Tours

ITA is excited to announce our twenty-second annual industry symposium to be held in High Point, North Carolina. The proposed dates for the 2018 tour is February 7-9. The program can accommodate up to 40 participants and is designed to benefit students (junior and seniors) and professors in the textile design fields.

“Fabric: From Concept to Consumer” will focus on the process of fabric creation, production, and use within the home furnishings industry. The tour will allow participants to see areas of design, styling, and product development. We will also visit weaving, printing, and finishing operations.

The tour will be educational, interesting, and fun for you and your students. Due to the limited number of participants, we ask that you get in touch with us as soon as possible so your space may be reserved.
