Peking Handicraft Inc. aligns with artist Trent for new collection of kitchen textiles


San Francisco -- Home décor and gift house Peking Handicraft Inc. is launching this winter at the various major markets a new line of kitchen textiles with artist Ellen Crimi Trent.

Trent's designs for PHI are created in five colorful designs, all of which are whimsical duck-themed patterns. Among them are "Sugar and Spice," "Kiss the Cook," "Bon Appétit," "What's Cookin'?" and "Never Trust a Skinny Cook," interpreted on aprons - standard and half sides, kitchen towels and pot holders.

Retail prices for each piece are set to range from $7 to $20.

Trent, who is based in Massachusetts, said she draws her inspiration from magazines, books, movies, fashion, nature, and her family. She has licensed her work to many companies within the gift and home industries, and has created programs - including bedding -- specifically for major retailers like JCPenny and Fred Meyer.
