Together – Christmasworld and Paperworld Trends 2021/22 are linked by a strong central theme
"Together" marks a new era of Christmasworld and Paperworld trends, whose product and style worlds are increasingly converging in global consumer trends. The logical consequence is three joint trend statements with the upcoming themes, colours, materials, inspirations and styles. They provide the international decoration and office and stationery segment with orientation for individual product combinations.
Sustainability to be a top theme at Paperworld 2021
For the first time, Paperworld will take place from 30 January to 2 February 2021 with an overriding central theme: sustainability. The three topics of environmentally conscious shopping, ecological practices and sustainability have been key issues in the paper, office supplies and stationery sector for a long time. They have also been part of Paperworld for many years and will be brought directly into focus in 2021 with the focus on sustainability.
