September 22, 2018

This summer, we explored the European market for home decoration and home textiles (HDHT) from Bangladesh, Ghana and Indonesia The study provides insights into the European market side of CBI’s HDHT value chain analysis for these countries.


To explore key elements like European buyer requirements and demand, we performed desk research and primary research. For the desk research, we used sources such as our existing CBI HDHT market intelligence, as well as ITC’s Trademap and Export Potential Map. Our primary research consisted of extensive interviews with HDHT sector experts and European importers with experience in one or more of the source countries.


We selected the following promising product groups per country, with a focus on handmade products of natural and/or recycled materials:


  • basketry
  • rugs and mats
  • decorative home textiles
  • shopping bags and totes


  • basketry
  • wooden home accessories
  • home accessories made of other materials


  • small wooden and rattan furniture
  • basketry
  • cushion covers and throws
