In 1952 we started as a small knitting company in Sydney Australia. Since the arrival of our first knitting machine, we have continued to grow from a small family business into a global knitwear manufacturer.
We won our first Army sweater contract in 1978, and from that moment on we decided to only focus on customers who needed performance knitwear that had to last and last. Since then, we have worked very hard to become the creators of almost 'unbreakable' knitwear.
Durable, strong but always.... Elegant.
Flimsy catwalk designs are not suitable for our customers, instead they demand well designed, contemporary knitwear that will perform. Whether it's for an Army officer, an airline pilot or a school student, our knitwear is worn all day - everyday.
Our customers depend on our experience and knowledge to help create the right garment for them - and that's the essence of the Elegant Knitting reputation.
In 2010 we started knitting in Wattala Sri Lanka, to help meet our business growth into Europe and the US. Five years later we moved all our knitting production to Wattala, but manage all our customers from Sydney. This ensures we build strong and close relationships with all our customers.
In 2019 Elegant Knitting International opened in the Biyagama Export Zone in newly built facilities and has become the largest flatbed sweater manufacturer in Sri Lanka.
