Arley goes with Kinkade

Brockton, MA — Arley Corporation announced that it has signed a two-and-a-half-year licensing deal with popular American artist Thomas Kinkade.

The line will encompass bedding, top-of-bed and soft window and will be unveiled for previewing in January, according to Jerry Pittman, Arley Corp.'s senior vp of sales and marketing.

Whether the bedding will be sold as open stock or as bagged ensembles, Pittman said, will depend on retailers' requests and needs. Pittman said the line is tentatively aimed at department and specialty stores as well as certain specialty catalogs.

"We're hoping to use this as a means of expanding our customer base," he said. "I think this will be very, very powerful for us."
