American Blanket inks deal with Cheri Blum

Dalton, GA — American Blanket Corp., a fledgling supplier of imported high-pile jacquard throws and blankets, has signed its first-ever designer license with home fashions designer Cheri Blum.

The move marks a major milestone for a company founded only two years and nurtured by blanket industry veteran John Ginn, vice president of sales and marketing.

American Blankets will launch the new line with three patterns at the upcoming April market, and begin shipping about Aug. 1.
