The Fruit of the Loom Story

Among the world’s oldest trademarked brands, Fruit of the Loom was born in the year 1851. It was the result of the strong friendship and bond between Mr. Robert Knight and Mr. Rufus Skeel. Mr. Skeel owned a shop in Providence that sold cloth made in Mr. Knight’s mill, also based in Rhode Island.

During a visit to his friend’s shop, Mr. Knight observed that the cloth on which Mr. Skeel’s daughter drew an apple design sold much better than cloth without the design. Thinking it would be the perfect label, he coined the name “Fruit of the Loom,” a play on the expression from the Bible “fruit of the womb,” meaning children. Fruit of the Loom grew quickly due to its high-quality cloth and affordable prices.

In the late 20th century, some financial mishaps led the company to massive losses. In 2002, after filing for bankruptcy, Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway purchased the company. Now, with the patronage of an eminent and astute businessman with a prominent heritage, Fruit of the Loom went on the path of modern-day success and has also reached international shores.

Why Buy Wholesale

Buying Fruit of the Loom wholesale would benefit your budget in a significant way, getting you the stock you need at a much lower price. Although, choosing a distributor who eases your worries is also essential.

A drop-shipping company may also sell wholesale, but they don’t necessarily keep inventory in stock. They buy from the manufacturer only AFTER you place the order. So deep discounts can’t be expected in this situation. Also, after you pay, if the drop shipper can’t find the exact product you want, you’re in a fix.

Another thing to keep in mind is reliability. Many companies — especially start-ups — face this problem. They choose a wholesaler only to later find problems in the quality of the product they paid their hard-earned money for.

To avoid such circumstances, it’s wise to choose a wholesaler with a long-standing reputation for quality goods, a well-stocked inventory and excellent customer satisfaction. The Adair Group has all that and so much more. Once you place an order, you can sit back and relax, knowing you and your order are in good hands.
