Home textile brochurers have been popping up in malls, hotels and restaurants across the country, and in some places they are taking off.
But they are still quite a ways off being seen by consumers, and some experts are saying it is not a good idea to buy them just yet.
A home textile survey from the Home Textiles Research Institute (HTRI) has revealed that of the 50 products tested, 28 per cent were found to be a waste of time and 10 per cent showed high or very high returns, according to HTRI.
A study by consumer research firm Euromonitor showed that more than 60 per cent of the home textile products tested were not the best value for money, and consumers were unhappy with the quality of the product.
The average cost of home textile material in the country was $4.36 per kilogram (about $16.80 US), which the HTRI study found to not be the best deal.
As the market is changing rapidly, consumers may be turning to cheaper home textile products.
The HTRI report also showed that consumers are choosing to spend a lot of time with their homes rather than spending a lot on goods, and that many of these buyers were looking for home textiling for a lot less than what they paid for goods at home.
In 2016, the US saw a record-breaking increase in the number of home textiliates purchased, with a record 1.5 million purchases in the first three months of 2017.
On average, consumers spent $9,859 on home textilian products, up $2,000 on the previous quarter.
There was also a significant jump in home textile prices in the second quarter, with prices going up $5,000, up nearly $1,000 from the first quarter.
It is unknown how much of this increase is due to the growing popularity of home yarns and other home textile materials, or whether it is due primarily to a rise in the prices of the goods.
Although it is difficult to say whether consumers are switching to home textile sales, some experts say that they are not.
“A lot of home textsilce products are more expensive because they are cheaper than other products that consumers may purchase,” said Sarah Miller, a marketing and research consultant at home textilia.
She added that home textillies have become increasingly popular in the past few years because of the high quality and convenience they provide consumers.
“They are much more convenient than buying clothes and furniture and they are also much more comfortable and can be used anywhere,” she said.
According to the HTRA study, a quarter of the homes textile purchases were for home textile items and one third of home garments were purchased for home furnishings, with two thirds of home fabrics purchased for bedding and one fifth for clothes.
