Cheadle, UK (7th November 2012) – Christy, the UK’s leading provider of luxury towels, bed linen and home accessories, has developed a range of luxury bathroom accessories featuring the popular children’s book character, the Gruffalo.

To bring their luxurious products to a younger age group, Christy has created a range of towels and bathroom accessories featuring the Gruffalo, the titular character from Julia Donaldson’s children’s book, The Gruffalo. The book has become hugely popular, selling over 10.5 million copies and winning several high-profile awards. The book has also been adapted into an animated film, and a play and has inspired a trail in the Forest of Dean.

Christy’s new Gruffalo range features a bath towel, a hand towel and a gift set of a cuddle robe and washes mitt in a duffle bag, produced with a soft cotton pile and delicate embroidery. As the foremost name in luxury towels, Christy has always sought to create a diverse range for all homes, and with these new products, they are excited to bring their luxury manufacturing to a younger group.

“The Gruffalo has become a favourite character for many children and adults alike, and our new range is the ideal Christmas gift for any young fan – and will help make bath time more appealing and fun,” said Lucy Ackroyd, Design Manager for Christy. “As with all of our products, our Gruffalo towels, cuddle robe and mitt are manufactured with the finest materials to ensure the softest, gentlest touch against delicate skin. We hope little Gruffalo fans love our new range and enjoy bath time more than ever!”
