US: Downton Abbey home décor range on the way from Heritage Lace

Table textiles, kitchen textiles, pillows, shower curtains, gift accessories and women's lace will arrive in Q1 2014.

Heritage Lace has been granted the rights to produce a line of Downton Abbey home décor products in the US.

Knockout Licensing revealed that a range including table textiles, kitchen textiles, pillows, shower curtains, gift accessories and women's lace will arrive in Q1 2014.

“Our Downton Abbey products are inspired by the rich cast of characters – both upstairs and down," said Heritage Lace Co-CEO, Daniel De Cook.

"Whether you lean towards ‘fancy & refined’ or ‘clean & simple’ the 2014 Downton product line is fun, fresh and certainly relevant to today’s discerning tastes."

Hertitage Lace has one of the last textile mills of its kind in North America and the company produces over 90 percent of its products in its own U.S. facilities in North Carolina and Iowa.

“Heritage Lace is a great family-run company that really impressed us with their gorgeous high quality laces and textiles,” said Brad Wald, Chief Commercial Officer, NBCUniversal International Television Production.

“Fans who enjoy the stylish elegance they see on television will love Heritage Lace’s line of Downton Abbey home textiles.”

Knockout Licensing Co-Presidents Carole Postal added: “Heritage Lace combines old world attention to detail with modern American manufacturing innovations, so they make a wonderful fit for our Downton Abbey licensing program."
