The Fruit of the Loom logo

Fruit of the Loom is known worldwide for their T-Shirts and Sweatshirts. The company logo is a still life of fruits, which seems unusual for a textile producer.

The first time the logo was presented was in 1983, at the world exhibition in Chicago. Before that, it consisted only of a red apple, which was the idea of farmer Rufus Skeel from Hudson Valley. His daughter used to draw red apples, and one day she stuck an image of a red apple onto a roll of cloth.

This roll of cloth sold so well that the farmer decided to mark all high-quality rolls with that label. The founders of "Fruit of the Loom" heard about that, adopted the idea and named their company after it.
