Brand #9: Healthknit
Era: 1950s to late 1980s
Information: Originating in Knoxville Tennessee the Healthknit brand was trademarked in 1950 as a manufacturer of men’s, boy’s and children’s under garments and pajamas. During the company’s formative years t-shirts were still considered underwear so production flourished when plain white tees evolved in to common outerwear. Healthknit continued to ramp up tee production when screen printing erupted in the 1970s and 80s. However, the brand vanished by 1990 which may have been due to a transaction with Delta Apparel inc. who is the current owner of the trademark.
