Claverack, N.Y. — Pamela Kline of Traditions by Pamela Kline, a luxury linens designer/supplier, together with Tom Roth of Weathervane Hill, have formed a new company: Kline and Roth Private Label.
The company combines the sourcing expertise and textile knowledge of Roth with the design and marketing talent of Kline. The new company, apart from each partner's existing businesses, will focus on custom design programs and product development for catalogs, department stores, e-commerce and mass merchants.
Shari Kline, president of Traditions by Pamela Kline, has been named president of Kline and Roth Private Label. “One of the most important things is the excitement they create together,” she remarked. “The most exciting part is seeing Pamela and Tom working together. ”
Kline said, “We will target customers that Traditions couldn't sell because of price points or distribution. We'll offer sourcing and a special twist in design.” Traditions will do fabrications here in Columbia County, as well as finished product in Portugal, India and Italy — about a 50/50 mix.
The company will focus on bed linens, sleepwear, decorative accessories and other furnishings with an emphasis on quality, branding and positioning in the marketplace.
