Known for its relaxed casual women’s clothing, Los Angeles-based manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer XCVI LLC has acquired Agave Denim for an undisclosed sum. Effective immediately, XCVI will be designing, manufacturing and distributing Agave products worldwide. Agave’s founder, Jeff Shafer, will remain the brand’s creative director.
“In building the Agave brand, it has always been integral for me to manufacture the product in an ethical and sustainable way,” said Shafer. “I am honored to share this vision with the entire team at XCVI.”
“We are delighted to welcome AGAVE to XCVI’s distinguished portfolio,” added Alon Zeltzer, XCVI’s chief executive. “With a 20-year history of authentic California design, we share a passion for brand building with an updated approach that will refine this timeless classic.”
With over 20 years of manufacturing experience and success, today XCVI LLC also offers full package design-through-production options to high profile clients, including Ralph Lauren, Guess Inc, Rag and Bone, True Religion, NYDJ, and New Balance to name a few.
