Elegant Vests for Wine Bottles New Include Golf Patterns

Mill Creek, Wash. (March 11, 2005) – CJ Design & Décor is unveiling two new styles of WineWear vests to commemorate the start of golf season. The latest styles feature golf motif prints. The handcrafted vests slip over the neck of a wine bottle, making a unique gift, display or tournament prize.

The wine vests are the creation of Carole Davis, founder of CJ Design & Décor, a startup company in Mill Creek (Wash.) that specializes in custom sewn solutions for the home and family.

The golf motifs include a tapestry print with a classic, “old fashioned” look or a more whimsical print featuring golf balls and clubs.

Other styles of WineWear vests feature grape prints, solid colors and designs with University of Washington and Washington State University color schemes.

Davis uses a variety of high-quality fabrics for the vests, ranging from brocades and velveteens to tapestries and poly-cotton blends. Each vest is embellished with trims, beads and “dangles” to complement the theme. (e.g., beads spelling out “golf” or “par” dangle from the golf vests). The vests slip over the neck of the bottle and are held in place with a fabric-covered elastic strap.

Custom designs are also available for corporate gift-giving or to honor an individual’s special interests or achievements.

The wine vests, which sell for $19.50 (including tax and shipping) are available by mail order (for order form call 425.275.3919 or e-mail: Retail outlets that feature wine accessories and gifts are in the process of being arranged, according to Davis.

Davis launched her business at the urging of friends and long-time recipients of her handcrafted creations. In addition to WineWear vests, products crafted by CJ Design & Décor include velvet hairclips for young ladies and custom crib linens. As her business grows, Davis plans to offer her creations at selected gift shops and at holiday craft shows. Last Christmas, The Spirit of Christmas store in Kirkland featured several custom-designed wine vests that reflected the themes of the trees that decorate the shop. A custom crib linen set is currently displayed at Go To Your Room, a children’s furnishing store in Bellevue, Wash.
