Only manufacturers of furnishing fabrics, curtains and trimmings are admitted to exhibit at Proposte. They must share at least three characteristics: the qualification of their companies and products, professional correctness, commitment to research and development in creativity and technologies.

New dates!

Proposte, World Preview of Furnishing Fabrics and Curtains, for the first time since 1993 will not be held in May. In 2015 it will take place on the 27th, 28th and 29th of April at Villa Erba in Cernobbio (Como, Italy) as always. The leading home textile manufacturers will exhibit their collections at a show focused entirely on fostering business and international contacts.
