The Sak Brand Group Expands Classifications

New hats and scarves by sakroots

San Francisco—What started with a simple crochet Tightweave handbag under The Sak brand is rapidly turning into a lifestyle company spanning numerous labels and growing classifications.

The company had already introduced artist print rain boots and casual footwear under its sakroots division in recent seasons, not to mention an increasing array of cosmetic cases and tech accessories, but it’s looking further ahead.

The latest introductions are stand-alone footwear collections under The Sak and Elliott Lucca, as well as hats and scarves launched under the sakroots label and retailing for $20 to $25.
