Character World gets license to make Beatles bedding products


Character World, the £16m turnover licensed textile company based in Cheadle Hulme, has won the license to design bedding products featuring the Beatles.

The company has been awarded the license by Apple Corps, allowing it to design and manufacturing bedding products including single and double duvets, curtains, cushions, pillows, fleece blankets. The range will be launched in store and online from August 2008.

Danny Schweiger, director at Character World, said: “Adding such a prestigious brand to our growing portfolio is a testament to the hard work and creativity of our team. The brand has unrivalled popularity and appeal amongst fans of all ages and I’m confident our innovative designs will lead to massive sales throughout the UK.”

Character World has also won a number of license renewals until the end of 2009, for Fifi and the Flowertots, Peppa Pig and The Simpsons.

Will the bedding, etc. be sold only in the UK, or will it be available in the USA as well? I hope it's not too expensive, because I'll be going off to college in the fall, and I'd love Beatle-stuff for my dorm room.

GGirl, you are incorrigible!

You don't need no pillow - your dreams will keep you well rested. Cloud, too can make that claim what with her bawdy little dreams!

HA! I love it! I hope they sell them in the US. It just may be time for me to get some new bedding... I'll gladly take Paul to bed with me.

Let's have a Beatle themed pajama party. Cloud can bring the dream scape of George dressed in nothing but his skin and hopefully a smile and some of you racy girls can tell bedtime stories about George, er, I mean the Fabs.

Beatle Lennon (er, I mean linen) as well as Beatle duvets can cover each person's sleeping space.
