Organically Grown Group LLC, a Los Angeles-based licensing company recently founded to provide
fashion, footwear, accessories, home furnishings and textiles made with organically grown
materials, has signed its first licensees.
Delta Galil Industries Ltd., Israel, will manufacture sleepwear. Kids Headquarters, New York
City, will manufacture babies’ and children’s apparel; and Kayo of California, Los Angeles, will
manufacture womenswear. The new lines, all bearing the Organically Grown brand name, are set to
launch in Fall 2008.
“These companies are the best manufacturers in their respective categories, with combined sales of
approximately $2 billion,” said Larry Brandt, co-founder of the group, which is currently looking
for licensees for home furnishings and textiles, junior sportswear, footwear and accessories.
Organically Grown grew out of Brandt’s and co-founder and co-CEO Bob Stein’s desire to “
provide organic fashion for the entire family at a value,” according to Stein. Brandt acquired the
Organically Grown and Organically Grown Kids brand names from TJX, a Framingham, Mass.-based
apparel and home fashions retail company that he previously worked for, transforming the assets
into the Organically Grown Group.
Wearology Ltd. — an India-based business involved in organic farming and apparel, as well as
real estate development, recently acquired a 50-percent interest in the new company.
