Our Story

Since 1917

In 1917, a tailor named Abraham Straus opened a small knitting business to help support his family of eight. Shortly after that, Mr. Straus created the first knit trimmings for jackets. The warm and soft fabrics were a triumph, holding the cold, northern winter air out while keeping the wearer’s warmth inside.

Still Going Strong

Today Abraham Straus’s knitting mill is a success as the company continually expands to meet the needs of new markets and opportunities moving forward to meet the demands of a global economy. Based in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin, the commitment to customers, family, quality, and innovation that Abraham Straus began is greater than ever. We are proud of our history and we are excited about today and the future.
