Cobra/Espalma towels back into jaqs
September 19, 2003,
At the New York Market — After a 35-year lapse, Cobra/Espalma is bringing back jacquard beach towels to its assortment with a launch at the market.
Rae Ellen, Blum, vp, sales and marketing, told HTT the re-introduction comes thanks to more competitive prices on jacquard varieties from Brazil, the company's source for all of its bath and beach towels. "The prices from Brazil have really gotten better with the rise of China as a competitor," Blum said.
Designs include bold colorways in florals and vertical and horizontal stripes.
They coordinate with a line of bath towels that are solid with multi-color striped borders as well as with other bath ensemble collections.
