United Feather Extends Portico Program to Hospitality Market
May 4, 2010,
DES PLAINES, Ill.-United Feather & Down has reached an agreement with the Portico brand to produce a bed and bath collection geared specifically toward the hospitality industry.
Called Portico Hospitality, the new line is an expansion on the collection that the two companies launched during the March New York Home Fashions Market, which is aimed at the consumer retail market. The bedding portion of this new line features 100 percent organic cotton certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), paired with Lyocell Down, United Feather's patented blend of Freshness Assured down and lyocell fibers, or with Naturelle, a trademarked down alternative made from recycled materials and lyocell fibers.
The collection will be formally launched at the upcoming HD Expo, the hospitality trade show that is scheduled for May 19-21 in Las Vegas.
