International designer, manufacturer and marketer Tandy Brands Accessories Inc announced that it has signed an agreement to become the licensee of design company Eileen West for women's belts, small leather goods and handbags. The lines will be available beginning fall 2007 in better department stores.
Based in San Francisco, Eileen West designs sleepwear, dresses and quality products for the home with her signature balance of romance, beauty and comfort.
Drawing her inspiration from the dramatic coastlines, crisp blue skies and varying lights of Northern California, she creates hundreds of original textile prints each year. Eileen West designs can be found in such stores as Dillard's, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom and Lord & Taylor.
"We're excited to partner with one of the premier design firms in the women's intimate apparel category," said J. S. B. Jenkins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tandy Brands. "We look forward to translating Eileen West's fresh, distinctive designs into belts, small leather goods and handbags."
