Divatex snags Shag license
March 19, 2004,
NEW YORK — Shag's hipster cool design will make its debut as home textiles later this week at the Divatex showroom.
Divatex has been licensed to produce bedding, bath and beach featuring Shag designs. Although the main business of Shag — California artist Josh Angle — is artwork, his designs have also been licensed for barware, cocktail napkins, placemats, coasters, books, men's shorts, ties, stationery, watches and accessories.
"It's fun and funky, with good vibes," said Shay Zamit, vice president of merchandising, Divatex. "It's the kind of design that looks futuristic by taking from the past."
