Brand management company Cherokee has completed its launch of the Cherokee Brand in China with RT Mart Stores.

RT Mart, a division of textile firm Ruentex Industries, operates 134 stores in China.

Peter Huang, CEO & president of RT Mart, said: “We have launched the Cherokee Brand with much success and based on initial results, there is tremendous potential for category and product expansion. In addition, as we continue with our plan to open more stores throughout China, Cherokee will become one of the larger family lifestyle brands in our country. We look forward to working closely with the Cherokee team and share much success together.”

Larry Sass, executive vice president of Cherokee, said: “Our launch in China with RT Mart is a watershed occasion for our company. We will continue to diligently work together with RT Mart and build on our initial successes.”

Cherokee first announced the license deal with RT in November last year.
