In 1917, Abraham Straus, a tailor, began a small knitting business to support his family of eight. Soon thereafter, he created the first knit trimmings for jackets and other outdoor apparel.

Today Abraham's knitting mill is a multi-million dollar success as the company continually expands to meet the needs of new markets and opportunities.

Based in St. Croix Falls, WI, the commitment to customers, family, quality and innovation that Abraham Straus began is stronger than ever.

As proud as we are of our history, we are even more excited about today and tomorrow.
