Peking Handicraft signs licensing agreements

San Francisco -- Peking Handicraft, Inc. (PHI), an international manufacturer and wholesaler specializing in home textiles, decorative accessories and giftware, has initiated licensing agreements with Be the Ball Foundation and separately, with artists Anna Maria Horner, Paris Bottman, and Tim Coffey. 

Be the Ball Foundation features the art of award-winning illustrator Bob Commander, whose golf ball characters will be featured on a new PHI collection of linen towels and coir mats. The Foundation's mission is to promote youth fitness through participation in all ball sports, and to raise awareness about the importance of proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle for young people. 

Anna Maria Horner is an artist whose work ranges from floral decoratives to graphically presented witty sayings. PHI will produce her designs on kitchen-themed items including table linens, runners, napkins, placemats, and guest towels.

Paris Bottman has built a loyal fan base for more than 25 years with her “dressed animal” colored pencil drawings and watercolors. PHI will offer her designs on holiday-themed needle point pillows in the Red Mittens and Green Stockings collection.

Tim Coffey's whimsical characters, bold colors, and rich textures enrich his magical menageries, soothing still-lifes, and far-reaching landscapes. PHI will feature Coffey’s work on a new collection of waffle-weave towels.
