LOOK GREAT & GIVE BACK:
INTRODUCING TREASURE&BOND BY NORDSTROM

Nordstrom has always been committed to offering our customers the latest in fashion and trends. We've also long looked for opportunities to give back to the communities that give us so much. So why not marry the two? Look Great & Give Back. That's the thought behind the new Nordstrom brand Treasure&Bond.

What Girls Inc. does for girls and young women is just a perfect fit for what we wanted to evoke and support through the Treasure&Bond brand.
- Julie Goldstein, Brand Manager, Nordstrom Product Group

Treasure&Bond offers updated and reworked favorites at great prices—think washed denim, soft plaid shirts, your favorite tees and well-worked-in moto jackets. Even better than that? Treasure&Bond enables fashion-savvy customers to give back with every purchase. Five percent of the net profits from sales of Treasure&Bond merchandise will always go to a nonprofit organization that's empowering women and girls. So customers get great clothing at an incredible value and help support great community-focused organizations!

"As we created this brand, we thought a lot about the customers who would love this lived-in vintage look and the things that inspire and motivate them. Words like confident and authentic came to mind, and the idea of making this about giving back—the most authentic thing we can do to support others—and then finding a way to give back that would resonate with Treasure&Bond customers, was born," said Julie Goldstein, the brand manager for Nordstrom Product Group who helped create the new line. "As we thought about names, we didn't look too far from home—it was natural to go with Treasure&Bond, in honor of our philanthropic store with the same name that was based in New York City."
