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.”
