Fruit of the Loom was born in 1851 when brothers Benjamin and Robert Knight bought their first mill and started producing cotton cloth and textiles in Warwick, Rhode Island. Fruit of the Loom was registered as an official trademark in 1871, making it one of the world’s most historic brands – predating the invention of light bulbs, cars, and telephones!

At Fruit of the Loom, Inc. we are committed to ensuring that our company conducts business in a socially responsible fashion, balancing the needs of the business with our impact on the environment, the people involved in our supply chain, and the communities in which we operate.
The garment industry has a challenging business model, with retailers and manufacturers competing with consumer-driven, low-priced products. An industry, once primarily manufacturing in the U.S., has moved operations to manufacturing hubs in other countries quickly complicating supply chains and distancing consumers from the source of the product. In this complex model, it is imperative that companies recognize the impact of their operations and diligently work together, as part of a larger effort, with producers, manufacturers, brands, retailers, and consumers to make that model sustainable.
Fruit of the Loom, Inc. also believes that successful companies need healthy societies. We embrace the concept of corporate social responsibility as a tool that provides an integral view of business and society.
It is our responsibility to strategically utilize our expertise and resources to run a competitive and profitable business, while at the same time adding value to the communities in which we operate by preserving our planet’s natural resources and empowering our people.
