The November/December issue of Housewares Magazine is now available to read HERE!
This has undoubtedly been a challenging year for the industry with consumer incomes pinched by the cost-of-living crisis, however, in this issue we’re looking forward to hopefully a more positive new year.
In this issue, we delve into the top trends of 2022 and look ahead to new trends for 2023 in household cleaning, small domestic appliances and home décor. With a number of highly-anticipated events organised for the industry, we’ve covered everything from Ambiente, Spring Fair and The Inspired Home Show to Exclusively, INDX Homewares and Top Drawer. Next year we’ll also be hosting our annual Housewares Awards to celebrate key retailers and suppliers and give the industry the recognition it deserves.
Throughout the rest of the issue, you’ll notice a theme of sustainability across our cookware, hydration, barware and woodware features. Consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious, and as Honest’s Georgia Bell says in an exclusive interview on page 18, businesses “are having to respond to this by designing in sustainability in every step of the product’s lifecycle.” You can also find out about the latest sustainable products and projects in our dedicated eco-friendly features.
Elsewhere, you’ll find, as always, our regular news, views and product pages showcasing the latest from market-leading housewares brands across the sector.
We hope you enjoy the issue!
