Butte Knit was a subdivision of Jonathon Logan. It was established in 1959 by David Schwartz in South Carolina, becoming the first company to produce double knit fabric in the US. The entire process from spinning the yarn to producing the finished garment was all done in the Butte Knit factory, which was unique at the time.
