I grew up in and around Portland and I loved the iconic diving girl that represented Jantzen Knitting Mills, a manufacturer of swimsuits and sportswear. John A. Zehntbauer and Carl Jantzen founded the Portland Knitting Company in 1910, They produced sweaters, woolen hosiery and other knitted goods in the upstairs space, and sold them in the retail outlet downstairs.
I have a pretty Jantzen Sweater Vest from the late 70s-early 80s in my Etsy
store, In Clover Vintage
for sale to rev up the holidays for $18 and FREE SHIPPING!
