The Goldworm Knitwear Company was founded in 1928 by Gertrude Goldworm. This family-run business was based in New York, and over the years grew to become hugely influential in the knitwear industry. Her son, Robert, having graduated from New York University in 1947, also joined the company and was soon recognized as a talented knitwear designe. Shortly after, Robert traveled to Italy in search of quality hand finishing: buttonholes hand done, seams looped. Whilst there, he joined forces with a small knitwear business owned and operated by the Dragone family. This merger allowed Goldworm to combine American fashions with traditional quality Italian craftsmanship. Robert’s sister, Beverly Tuttman, joined the company as head designer and helped turn classic knitwear into high fashion. The Goldworm company has received many honors, including the Coty Award and the Editorial Fashion Award by Glamour Magazine. In 1968, Goldworm became the first American company to receive the Premio Mercurio D’oro, Italy’s highest award for commercial and economic achievement.
