The brand sold clothing and accessories in 15 countries in more than 150 stores and in the company's last year they grossed 1,5 million Euro.

The company was closed down during July 2008 and is no longer active on the market.
Jenny Hellström has since then worked as a consultant and also written two books: “Sew! From Hood to Shirt Dress” (2013) and “Sew! Urban Collection” (2014) with the aim to inspire others to express themselves, stand up for what they like and pay tribute to the creativity in all of us.
