According to the Vintage Fashion Guild, the Goldworm Knitwear Company was founded in 1928 in New York by Mrs. Gertrude Goldworm. This family-run business influenced the entire knitwear industry. Gertrude's son, Robert, graduated from New York University in 1947 and joined the company. Robert traveled to Italy in search of quality hand finishing. There he joined forces with a small knitwear business owned and operated by the Dragone family. This merger allowed Goldworm to translate American fashions, but with traditional Italian craftsmanship.

Soon Robert’s sister, Beverly Tuttman, joined the company as head designer and helped turn classic knitwear into high fashion. The Goldworm knit company has received many honors, including the Coty Award and the Editorial Fashion Award by Glamour Magazine. In 1968, Goldworm became the first American to receive the Premio Mercurio D’oro, Italy’s highest award for commercial and economic achievement.
