JiBS has been sold to Fletcher Ltd., a company with brands that include Blundstone, Helix and Undertow. JiBS was founded in 1997, and made its mark with the Splog, the first fleece clog in its category. Ivan Davidowitz, one of the JiBS founders and the company's current president, will stay on as a brand manager. SNEWS® View: This is a good move for JiBS as the small company was struggling to remain a credible force against much bigger players in the market who also have clogs similar in design. You can only bank on the Splog success for so long. Fletcher has inroads to a market JiBS wants to play in, and JiBS has access to a stronger dealer base and marketing expertise to assist it.
