Crestmont, Edinburgh venture to launch at Showtime

Hauppauge, NY — Crestmont Fabrics will launch the first collection of a joint venture with Edinburgh Weavers Ltd. at Showtime in High Point, NC, this week.

Crestmont, a converter of multi-purpose and drapery solid-color and textured fabrics, will introduce 18 patterns in 75 skus under the EW Collection label, said Paul Harris, Crestmont's ceo.

The prints are on two base cloths: a cotton/linen blend for drapery, upholstery and top of the bed applications; and a polyester voile burnout.

"We think the styling and quality of Edinburgh's line will make a great addition to Crestmont," Harris added. "It's a venue we have been contemplating for a while, and with Edinburgh we think it is an appropriate platform to enter the print business."

Lars Lund, director of the Lancashire, England-based print company, said, "With this joint venture, Edinburgh hopes to use Crestmont as entry to the U.S. market to build on an already strong European business."
