Time capsule...


I don't normally talk about fashion here, but I read an article about Ohio Knitting Mills in January's Country Living and am totally intrigued. Apparently Ohio Knitting Mills manufactured sweaters and knit goods from 1947 to 1974 and, according to the website for the Brooklyn store, "After World War II, the Mill plucked samples of each style they produced and put them into storage. Five decades later, this archive had grown into a vast collection of remarkable design artifacts, representing mainstream fashion from the classic 40’s, fab 50’s, swinging 60’s, and funky 70’s. We’ve opened this time capsule, and offer to you our collection of perfectly preserved American fashion and industrial craftsmanship.". How awesome is that?! Can you imagine finding a warehouse full of vintage sweaters?! Love it!
