A labyrinth has no beginning and no end. The way in is the way out.There are no blind alleys. The path leads us trough different stages of growth, symbolised by trees. Life’s important moments are now regarded as new reference points for our sense-seeking society.

For the season 2010 we have selected six trend themes within this concept. Each theme is visualised as a mood with fabric samples and colours.

The moods will be translated in the following trees of life;

EMOTION - Tree Of Innocence
TRADITION - Tree Of History
EVOLUTION - Tree Of Miracle
EROSION - Tree Of Wisdom
ABSTRACTION - Tree Of Dreams
REVOLUTION - Tree Of Victory
