9Threads grew organically from two award-winning B-2-B publications, Earnshaw’s and Footwear Plus, which cover the childrenswear and footwear industries, respectively. With a combined legacy of 117 years of publishing expertise—one that specializes in the unique world of fashion media—9Threads is uniquely qualified to help communicate the custom publishing messages of the brands it has been covering for decades. 9Threads knows fashion and business, and understands the nuances among the myriad of brands and categories, expertly communicating the differences in a powerful and compelling way. With its own B-2-B magazines, the mission is to inform and inspire, ultimately to drive sales within the childrenswear and footwear markets. With its custom clients, the goal is the same—to create assets that will grow the client’s business.

Zapis Capital had previously made a successful investment in a publishing company (Symphony Publishing), and took its publishing interests a step further with the acquisition of these established names. With financial and resource support, Footwear Plus and Earnshaw’s were able to evolve the business model from traditional, print media to digital publishing, and finally to a custom content group that offers branded content to fashion clients. 9Threads continues to own the trade space in footwear and children’s wear, and has experienced exceptional growth with its custom publishing offerings.
