In 2006, Cleveland-based designer Steven Tatar, met the family that owned the mill and they generously set out on a mission to salvage the history and production of one of the largest and most storied knitwear manufacturers in the United States.
Founded in 1927 amidst Cleveland’s thriving garment industry, one family oversaw the Ohio Knitting Mills as it produced garments for iconic department stores from Sears to Saks, and hundreds of revered labels such as Pendleton and Van Heusen.
Three generations of this family operated the mill for a successful 76 years, and at its peak, the Ohio Knitting Mills factory occupied almost an entire city block, employing over a thousand workers.
However, Ohio Knitting Mills eventually succumbed to the shrinking of their industry as the competition parceled manufacturing overseas.
The mill sold off most of their equipment and closed up shop, but, for posterity, the owners of the mill saved and stored samples of every style they had produced. In 2005, Cleveland-based designer, Steven Tatar met the family and they generously shared their time capsule of clothing designs and patterns.
Today, Ohio Knitting Mills lives on in a new iteration, while creating the same, carefully crafted, domestically-knit sweaters as it did from its founding in 1927.
