Over 50 Years of the Finest – The St. Croix legacy of perfection continues Over 50 years ago, Bernhard Brenner came to America as a young knitting engineer from Europe with a singular vision: “To make the finest sweater that can be made.” Amid the scenic bluffs of the Upper Mississippi River Valley at Winona, Minnesota, Brenner founded Knitcraft Corporation, the maker of St. Croix Collections, with the belief that Winona’s beautiful countryside and the strong work ethic of its residents would be key to achieving his vision. In a short time, the St. Croix label became synonymous with perfection in craftsmanship and styling and earned its reputation as the world’s highest quality knitwear. St. Croix’s commitment to quality and the highest standards of craftsmanship begin with the finest raw materials in the world. We believe that every garment we produce should be perfect, and every item is inspected with this goal in mind.
“You cannot, at any price, from any source in the world, buy a better sweater. You can only pay more.” This philosophy has underscored our dedication for the past 50 years, and we will continue to provide the finest to our customers across the globe as we head toward to the future.
