MacKenzie-Childs, the Aurora, NY-based home furnishings manufacturer, has acquired Patience Brewster, Inc., a local handcrafted collectibles brand.
According to the company, the brand founder and designer, Patience Brewster, will become a member of the MacKenzie-Childs creative team to support the design and development process to expand the Patience Brewster by MacKenzie-Childs collection.
“The whimsical nature of the collection folds so naturally into our brand, and it will be so much fun having these characters to include in our seasonal and holiday stories,” said MacKenzie-Childs’ creative director and chief brand officer Rebecca Proctor. “Both companies love happy, beautiful things that are made with care by hand, and we enjoy the idea of producing things that you can continue to love for a very long time.”
“The instant Rebecca Proctor and I met, a harmonious synchronicity sparked which made friendship and business possibilities appear rompingly endless,” said Patience Brewster.
MacKenzie-Childs will incorporate products online and into catalogs and stores beginning this fall and will continue to introduce seasonal collections to its wholesale partners in 2019. Notable collections this fall include Dash Away Reindeer, Nativity, and 12 Days.
