History

At AKM, weaving a legacy of quality knitted trims since 1920 is our pride and passion. Founded by Eugene and Anna Andrews, our mill has stood the test of time, adapting and evolving to meet the changing needs of our valued customers.

Our Early Days

Being based in Minnesota, we understand the unique challenges and demands of cold weather, making us experts in creating knitted trims that provide both warmth and style. Our journey began with crafting exquisite sweaters, women’s suits, and caps specifically designed for the marching groups of the iconic St. Paul Winter Carnival. We were also the ingenious minds behind the cuffs and pant legs for the matching snowsuits they used.

Unfailing Excellence

What sets AKM apart is our unwavering commitment to being a family-operated business. Now, in the capable hands of the next generation, we carry forward the traditions and values instilled by our founders.
