Our History

Minnewawa started with ingenuity, determination, and the entrepreneurial spirit. Fred Hemenway -  a thrifty yankee looking for an investment opportunity and a German Immigrant named Ernest W. Blomach formed Minnewawa Mfg Co in the fall of 1929. Blomach was an expert in weaving and was looking for a business to put his skills to use. Together, this unlikely pair started Minnewawa. 

They set up 3 old looms in a drafty barn behind a house and started making labels for the underwear and bed linen industries in Utica, NY. This began just one month before the 1929 stock market crash. 

What's in a Name

Needing a name for their newly-formed company, Hemenway and Blomach chose Minnewawa after the small river than ran through the local town right behind the barn. For decades, the name "Minnewawa" has been synonymous with quality woven labels and superior customer service. 

Today and the Future

Now, three generations later, the purpose is still the same, to supply custom-made labels to the apparel industry with the same prompt service Minnewawa became known for through the years.

In any business, a reputation is earned. For almost 85 years, companies have trusted us to deliver an exceptional product. Time after time, we have been able to meet and exceed the requests of our valued customers. You can trust Minnewawa for orders both big and small - we are your label partner.
