SANTA MONICA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 8, 2014 / In January Encore Brands, Inc. (OTC.BB:ENCB) (“Encore Brands”, “Encore”) entered into an agreement to acquire the business and operations of Northridge Mills Holdings, Inc. (“Northridge Mills”).
As part of the company’s strategy to leverage the Northridge Mills factory’s capacity and improve its performance with new and existing customers, Encore has been looking at several branded apparel acquisitions that are a good fit for the current operations, types of fabric and construction that are its specialty.
To that end Encore Brands has entered into an agreement to acquire Thoreau brand apparel.
The Thoreau brand was founded on the belief that intelligence should never go out of style. In fact the brand considers itself the anti-Kardashian brand.
Following in the philosophy espoused by the transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau over 150 years ago, the brands creator considered the legions of fashion lemmings and reality TV followers and surmised there was an enormous audience not of that ilk who are looking for a brand that speaks to their intellect, integrity and self assurance and understands that they define themselves and there own style not by adopting a trend or something they are spoon fed by the mass media, but by what they do in their day to day lives as individuals.
As the brand concept evolved it became clear it was more than just a clothing line, it was a philosophical stand on our society today.
With a percentage of all proceeds going to help fund environmental, educational and literacy programs it hopes to make its casual, yet functional clothing more than just visually appealing, but also establish Thoreau as the apparel company dedicated to making intelligence fashionable.
