Parkhurst Knitwear was founded in 1926 by Louis Borsook who ran a chain of Millinery stores. When he visited Europe, he found abandoned Beret machines in a barn and what followed was the idea to make and sell headwear.
Nearly a hundred years and three generations later, the business is still run by members of the Borsook family, with Steven Borsook as the head of the company. What started as a small dream of making headwear, has grown into a multi-faceted company that manufactures women’s scarves, gloves, sweaters, and much more. All Parkhurst products are designed and manufactured in Canada.
