Fruit of the Loom is an American company that
manufactures clothing, particularly underwear. The company's
world headquarters is in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Since 2002
it has been a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway.
The Fruit of the Loom brand dates back to 1851 in Rhode Island when
Robert Knight, a textile mill owner, visited his friend, Rufus Skeel.
Skeel owned a small shop in Providence that sold cloth from Knight's mill.
Skeel's daughter painted images of apples and applied them to the bolts of
cloth. The ones with the apple emblems proved most popular. Mr. Knight
thought the labels would be the perfect symbol for his trade name, Fruit
of the Loom – an expression referring to clothes, paralleling the phrase
"fruit of the womb" meaning "children", which can be traced back to use in
the Bible (Psalm 127:3).
