In the 1980s, the Wamsutta brand was acquired by multinational company Springs Global. After changing hands several times, it was purchased by the now-defunct Bed Bath & Beyond in 2012.

The company plans to continue this 178-year-old traditional brand value in the bedding, bathroom textiles and fashion home furnishing categories. Mohit Jain, executive vice chairman of Indo Count, said: "We will explore multiple distribution channels not only to reach the core consumers of the Wamsutta brand, but also hope to introduce the excellent quality and luxury of the Wamsutta brand to a new generation of consumers." He also said: “Our strategic vision is to leverage our operational capabilities to enhance the value of the brand and realize its potential globally. Wamsutta’s brand equity, combined with Indo Count’s global reach, will drive the brand to new heights, and becomes an important milestone in our expansion strategy.”
