Artex Knitting Mills is a family owned business that has been knitting fine products since 1926.
Artex Knitting Mills is one of the last great knitting mills in the USA. The company has survived the Great Depression, two World Wars, one Cold War, and the dawn of a new millennium.
Louis Gerbarg founded Artex Knitting Mills, Inc. in 1926 in Philadelphia's Olde City, delivering quality trimming goods to the thriving Philadelphia apparel industry. Later, the factory moved to North Philadelphia and then West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania.
In the 1960's and 1970's, Artex made high quality, attractive cotton and wool knit ties for brands all over the United States.
When fashions changed, Artex changed the style of goods - but not their values. Artex focused intensively on the growing market for knit hats and beanies. Growing and expanding, Artex moved to its current 80,000 square foot facility in 1990.
Today, American industry is facing a flood of low-cost goods from abroad, and Artex is facing the challenge head on. Customers come back to Artex products because they are reliable and high quality.
