Janice Chamberlain -- Home Textiles Today, April 15, 2002
Calhoun, GA — Bath and accent rug and top-of-bed manufacturer and importer Georgia Tufters has partnered with licensed property Joy & Jake to produce a line of 100 percent nylon bath and olefin and cotton accent rugs and 100 percent cotton tufted chenille bedspreads.
The partnership's initial collection will be Passport, a destination-themed coordinated bedding, bath and rug products package. Georgia Tufters' Passport products come in about four different styles that complement the collection's design.
For Joy & Jake, the partnership represents the property's second licensing deal — the first was forged in December with bedding and towel manufacturer and importer J.R. United, based in North Miami, Florida.
Georgia Tufters' product line for Joy & Jake is currently all made domestically at its facilities here at headquarters, Record said.
