The story of Tultex

Tultex is a brand with a long heritage, founded in 1937 in Virginia’s “Old South” cotton belt, and gradually expanding and becoming a comprehensive manufacturer of cotton apparel. Tultex was dedicated from the beginning to innovation and developing new products, colors, designs while at the same time exploring efficiency and quality.

By World War II, Tultex was the official supplier to the U.S. Army, providing olive drab sweatshirts for the troops. After the war, Tultex invented the recreational sweatshirt by offering a wide variety of colors of its U.S. Army design.

Over the next several decades, Tultex grew, introducing new designs and larger plants, and improved new colors. By the 1990s, the Tultex brand was purchased by an investor group and resurrected as a line of basic fleece and t-shirts.  Tultex has now grown into a full line of fashion basics, offering retail-quality tees, tanks and fleece in a number of fabrics for Men and Ladies in exciting colors and styles at a great price.

In 2016, Tultex has taken the brand to its highest level yet, embracing its heritage, commitment to quality and strong relationships with its customers and partners, and launched a new tagline to represent the evolution of the brand – Tultex – Tried.True.Trusted.

Tultex continues to evolve as the industry changes, building on our tradition of excellence and dedication to quality while keeping fresh, current and fashionable so you can build your sales with the Tultex brand.
