Linked together through Russell and Vanity Fair, Fruit of the Loom Inc. has become a worldwide leader in apparel providers. Centered in Bowling Green, Kentucky and now a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Fruit of the Loom was actually founded in 1851 by Robert Knight in the small state of Rhode Island. It wasn’t until 1871 that Fruit of the Loom was officially trademarked and set in stone to become one the world’s oldest lasting brands. Today Fruit of the Loom prides itself in creating “more than 90,000 jobs in close to 500 locations around the world”. Yet an astounding 90% of these are right here in the good ol’ USofA, just like any american brand should be.

Ever wonder where companies get their name? Well every story is different, but would you believe that this founder took his catchphrase from our holy bible? Psalm 127:3 reads “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” As Mr. Robert Knight’s friend Mr. Skeel’s daughter painted apples on her fathers bolts of cloth Mr. Knight had found the perfect logo for his new company. Hence “fruit of the womb” had become “Fruit of the Loom”. Loom being defined as a machine for interlacing threads or yarn to form cloth. Pretty clever isn’t it?
