Harlequin launches Clarissa Hulse collection

Walker Greenbank plc (AIM: WGB), the luxury interior furnishings group whose brands include Sanderson, Morris & Co, Harlequin and Zoffany, is pleased to announce that its Harlequin brand has launched an innovative new collection created through a collaboration with Clarissa Hulse, one of the UK's most respected textile designers.

This exciting collaboration with Clarissa Hulse marks an extension of the design profile of Harlequin, broadening the brand's presence in the marketplace.

Clarissa Hulse's distinctive style, inspired by botanical themes, is unmistakable in the new Harlequin collection, which is named Kallianthi. The collection, of both fabrics and wallpapers, delivers a luxurious combination of colour, print and texture.

The Kallianthi collection can be viewed at Harlequin's recently redesigned website at www.harlequin.uk.com/kallianthi-fabrics.aspx and at www.harlequin.uk.com/kallianthi-wallpapers.aspx.

The relaunched Harlequin website, at www.harlequin.uk.com, has many new features to provide an improved browsing experience and to better showcase Harlequin's fabrics and wallpapers. For the first time, the website highlights finished products, such as bedlinen and bathroom towels, manufactured by Harlequin licensees. These products allow the website visitors to see how Harlequin's designs can be used throughout the home, integrating wallpapers, curtains, soft furnishings, tableware and other home accessories.

John Sach, Walker Greenbank's Chief Executive, said: "We're delighted to have collaborated with Clarissa Hulse on this exciting collection, which helps further stretch the Harlequin brand. Clarissa is one of the UK's most exciting textile designers and we are confident that the Kallianthi collection will be a great success. We are also very pleased with the relaunch of the Harlequin website, which aims to bring the brand closer to its customers."
