Komar has licensed New York-based Age Group Ltd. to manufacture, market and distribute seasonal Cuddl Duds footwear for women, girls and toddlers. The offering will bow with women’s slippers, including knit booties, scuffs and boots. All styles incorporate cushioned footbeds and versatile indoor-outdoor soles, and will retail from $16 to $46.

Separately, New York-based Great China Empire Ltd. has been named licensee for women’s and children’s hosiery. The debut collection will include women’s leg layering, lounge and performance outdoor styles, retailing from $8 to $14. 

The footwear and hosiery lines, set to deliver in August, will be targeted to Cuddl Duds retail partners in the U.S. and will sell online at Cuddlduds.com.   

Additionally, Fownes Brothers Inc., based New York, has acquired the license for Cuddl Duds cold-weather accessories, including gloves, hats and scarves.
