10 AM Market Opener: Segreto Designs for Coleman Taylor Textiles
Houston’s own Leslie Sinclair of Segreto Finishes, will present her new hand-painted fabric line with Coleman Taylor Textiles.  Classical inspirations from the European masters combine with the freshness of the modern world in a stunning introduction of four exclusive patterns. The new motifs are hand painted with proprietary paints that deliver a subtle metallic glow on sumptuous grounds. The designs make their debut here in Houston prior to being sampled at fine showrooms across the country.
