Eskimo Fashion Knitwear was incorporated in 1980 and was one of the earliest foreign investment projects launched after Sri Lanka commenced a programme of economic liberalisation. The company's expertise dates back to 1870 when the Merkel family, the ancestors of the Michael-Lohs family, started producing knitted gloves and socks in Rabenstein, which is located near the town of Chemnitz in the state of Saxony, Germany. With manufacturing costs continuing to rise in Europe a decision was taken to relocate production to Asia.

Thus Eskimo Fashion Knitwear came into being and now comprises a modern and integrated production plant built on 90,000 square meters of lush coconut land located near the international airport and the touristic town of Negombo. The Company started with an initial staffing of 200 people but has grown over the years and now employs over 2,000 people at 2 factories located in Negombo and Pallekele.

Our Vision

To establish Eskimo internationally as a brand that represents first class manufacturing operations.

Our Mission
