Russian linen.

Konstantin A. Tchoudinov got a lot of surprised looks when she told buyers at the Javits Center that her company's home textiles are made in Russia. Hardly anyone knew that Russia even had a home textile industry, she said.

"No one is promoting Russian good," said Tchoudinov, sales and promotion manager for Norway-based Moskovia, which showed for the first time at last week's sjow.

Moscovia showed bedding, table cloths and towels in either pure linen or a linen/cotton blend. "The collection is based on natural colors, "Tchoudinov said, noting that twin duvets wholesale for about $45 and can be made to the retailers specifications.

"We can make special orders, huge orfers," Tchoudinov said. "They are very huge factories in Russia."
