SAN FRANCISCO–Peking Handicraft has added illustrator Clare Mackie to its stable of artist licenses, and is launching her designs on a group of holiday merchandise.
A native of Scotland, Mackie is noted for her use of vivid colors and playful representations. The initial collection will consist of decorative pillows and towels that will highlight Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, featuring elements associated with all three holidays such as bats, turkeys, Santa Claus and reindeer.
The Mackie license is part of a long list of Peking Handicraft partnerships with artists, including Trina Turk, Dena and D.L. Rhein, along with other licenses with home-decor firm Umbra and MaryJane’s Farm.
