NEW DELHI TO HOST TEX-STYLES INDIA...HOLLANDER WON'T SHOW AT HEIMTEXTIL...ISIDOR BLUMENTHAL IS DEAD AT 93.

NEW DELHI TO HOST TEX-STYLES INDIA

Some 300 exhibitors will be ready to welcome buyers to the 10th Tex-Styles India 2004 Feb. 29 to March 4 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.

The India Trade Promotion Organisation said exhibitors at the show, which will sport a gross area of 16,000 square meters, will include makers of home furnishings, fabrics, yarns, knits, textile gifts, trims and accessories.

The fair is a one-stop solution for about 10,000 business visitors, including buying agents representing foreign companies from about 80 countries.

Tex-Styles India 2004 is supported by the Ministry of Textiles (Government of India), Office of the Textile Commissioner, the Textiles Committee and concerned export promotion councils.

HOLLANDER WON'T SHOW AT HEIMTEXTIL

Hollander Home Fashions will not be exhibiting at Heimtextil next year. Leo Hollander, chairman and chief executive officer, said the company was pulling out of the show in Frankfurt, Germany, Jan. 14 to 17, because it was proving too costly to exhibit in the traditional sense.

"The expense did not justify it," he said. "There are less and less companies attending." Hollander had shown at the show through its German subsidiary, Sclaffcomfort Hollander, for years. He said this year the company will send salespeople to deal directly with retail customers. Hollander added that his German associates made the decision to pull out of the show in June.

ISIDOR BLUMENTHAL IS DEAD AT 93

Isidor Blumenthal, longtime president of the Lion Brand Yarn Co. and the Orchard Yarn and Thread Co. Inc., and a pioneer in the mass merchandising of quality knitting and crocheting yarns, died Dec. 9, at his home in Far Rockaway, N.Y.

A third-generation merchant of yarns and notions, Blumenthal took over the reins of the family business in 1958. In the ensuing decades, he grew the company into an industry leader as knitting and crocheting transformed from quaint home crafts to hobbies.

While he held the title of president until his passing, Blumenthal gave up day-to-day operations several years ago. In 1991, his son David was appointed senior vice president and chief operating officer and continues to direct the company.

Blumenthal is survived by his wife, Ann (Chanchy); a son, Reuben, and his wife, Beth; a daughter, Deborah, and her husband, Rabbi Marvin Bash; his son, David, and his wife, Barbara; as well as seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
