WOOLRICH® ADDS HOLIDAY COLLECTIBLES LICENSE WITH LYNN HANEY COLLECTION
Woolrich, Inc., announces it has entered into a licensing agreement with holiday collectibles designer and manufacturer, Lynn Haney Collection, to create, produce, and market a full line of holiday-themed items.
The initial introduction will feature a collection of six handcrafted Woolrich Santa characters incorporating an array of outdoor-inspired fabrics including Woolrich’s famed designs from the company’s nearly 180-year heritage of classic, durable, functional outdoor wear. The full collection will debut in the Lynn Haney showroom at the January 2010 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market®. Two designs, “Bear Creek Santa” and “Santa of Cedar Lodge”, will be available in limited distribution through the company’s retail store website, www.hollyhocksgifts.com, and at the flagship Woolrich store in Woolrich, PA, beginning this month.
Santas will come in three sizes—18”, 21” and 24”—each with a Woolrich-inspired outdoor theme. Each will be dressed in fabrics representing 19th and 20th century heirloom textiles, some of which are still made at the historic Woolrich woolen mill in Woolrich, PA. All the Woolrich Santa characters are individually signed by the artist, and some will be produced in limited, collector-edition quantities. Retail prices will range from $330-$550 each. All the Santas are handcrafted in the Lynn Haney Collection studios in Lubbock, TX.
“Our Santa characters embody the rich legacy of Christmases past and present,” said company founder and President, Lynn Haney, adding, “Blending that with such an iconic American brand represented by the many familiar fabrics Woolrich is known for elevates these pieces to family heirloom status.”
According to Sharon Kepley, licensing manager, Woolrich home, “The Lynn Haney Collection’s holiday collectibles are beautifully designed and meticulously crafted. Their interpretation of the Woolrich aesthetic will give consumers treasured holiday mementos based in nearly 180 years of Woolrich heritage.”
