CREATIVE TICKING DEBUTS SPORT SUPPORT™ CONCEPT BED FOR ISPA 2016




GASTONIA, N.C. — March 9, 2016

Creative Ticking is proud to debut the Sport Support™ concept bed at ISPA EXPO, March 9-12. The bed showcases Creative Ticking’s capabilities in delivering innovative sleep solutions that pull from all facets of the textile industry. Designed for comfort and true performance, the Sport Support concept bed features two unique top-of-bed products, Embrace™ and Air Vent™, concepted by Creative Ticking and manufactured by parent company, Beverly Knits.

The first technical fabric showcased with the Sport Support concept bed, Embrace, is made to embrace the body at the moment of contact to create a more supportive sleep experience. The second technical fabric Creative Ticking will debut is Air Vent. Air Vent is part of the bed surface and allows the core of the bed to breathe by letting more air permeate through the fabric, creating a cooling sleep experience.

“The catalyst for the Sport Support concept bed was the design and technical abilities of modern day athletic wear,” said Constance Sousa, director of design and merchandising at Creative Ticking. “For example, with Embrace, the fabric is meant to envelope the skin and create a peaceful, cradling night’s sleep, something that a typical top-of-bed fabric doesn’t provide.”

The Sport Support concept bed will be shown in black, white and lime green, and is meant to stand out in a show room. The vibrant border design and geometric pattern of the top of bed fabrics are

reminiscent of what you find on a running or athletic shoe, something from which Sousa and her team drew a large amount of inspiration.

“Thanks to our relationships with leading performance apparel brands through Beverly Knits, Creative Ticking was able to leverage knitting technology outside of the ticking world to create something truly unique,” said Dennis St. Louis, president of Creative Ticking. “The Sport Support concept bed is an excellent example of the capabilities that set us apart in the industry and we plan on continuing to showcase new ideas that evolve from these key relationships moving forward.”

Creative Ticking Unveils New Branding Initiative: Creative Ticking – Knitting the Fabric of Dreams




GASTONIA, N.C. – March 9, 2016

After 10 years in the bedding industry, Creative Ticking unveils a new look and branding initiative featuring a new logo, tagline and website. Demonstrating its commitment to bringing the industry fresh and unique sleep solutions, the new tagline, Knitting the Fabric of Dreams, speaks to the depth and breadth of technical expertise behind Creative Ticking.

“Our new branding is intended to communicate Creative Ticking’s ability to combine imaginative style and design with our advanced technical expertise to create innovative solutions for the bedding industry,” said Ron Sytz, chief executive officer for Creative Ticking. “There is really no limit for us; we are knitting the fabrics our customers only dream about.”

The company is leveraging relationships and experience from its parent company, Beverly Knits, one of the largest circular knitters in the U.S. With more than 35 years of experience in the knitting industry, Beverly Knits is the technology center behind Creative Ticking, developing fabrics not only for the bedding category, but for a diverse mix of other industries, including active wear, intimate apparel, outdoor products, automotive, medical and industrial. Creative Ticking uses ideas, perspectives and knowledge from working with leading non-mattress brands to help create newness within the bedding market.

Part of the company’s new look is a revamped website, www.creativeticking.com, designed to showcase Creative Ticking’s integrated operation and many in-house capabilities, as well as make it easier for customers to access information about the company’s products, services and team. “The new site allows us to tell our story so our customers understand the added value we bring,” added Sytz. “We are the best kept secret in the knitting industry, but we want others to see what’s possible in partnering with us.”

Creative Ticking will debut its new logo and booth at ISPA Expo in Orlando, Fla., March 9-12, booth number 1159.
