true vintage 1950's (1959) KIMBERLY pointelle navy blue knit classic cardigan & knife pleated skirt set
Kimberly was formed in 1946 by Jack and Helen Lazar and was trademarked in 1947 in New York. Their first product was wool sweaters and soon matching knit skirts were added. The company continued to develop new products made from double knit wool, including dresses, suits, and coats.
At first their garments were made from 100% wool, but they began making mixtures of wool and Dacron and Orlon in the 1950s (to prevent sagging). They were also a buyer of Paris originals, taking a couture dress and adapting it to knitwear. By the mid 1960s Kimberly was one of the largest privately owned clothing manufacturing companies in the US.
