About Us

Heart-knitted in LT


In the land of lush green forests, deep blue lakes, gold rye fields and unpredictable waves of the Baltic sea  … In the land that is gifted with all four seasons - balmy spring, flowery summer, generous fall and cozy winter… In the land rich of fertile nature and diligent and devoted craftsmanhip...


In Lithuania, in the little city of Garliava
there is us - knitting family Garlita, the family that has been knitting for forty years of invaluable experience, relationship and happiness.

Garlita is a family business and is run by a father and two daughters, each of them being involved in every aspect of the process. The venture of two generations has led local knitwear factory into the successful and innovative global business. It all began in 1970, when Lithuanian army, gymnasiums and schools were in need of knitted uniforms… Therefore, we like to say that Garlita was founded for a good reason - to dress the country. More than 40 years have passed until today when Garlita exports knitwear to France, Germany, UK, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Israel, Russia, Japan and many other countries around the globe.

Global business


Ever since Garlita has been producing high quality products. We do not hesitate to call ourselves the masters of knitting -  every part of the process is conducted with love, care and devotion. Organic and innovative knitted garments are the essence of the production – there are 52 new Stoll knitting machines. The production is mainly focused on women-wear, men-wear and clothing for children as well as home-wear and school, army or police uniforms. We are the children of nature, therefore we are specialized manufacturers of complex products with windproof lining, difficult zippers or patches on product. The knitwear with antimosquito treatment or Teflon coating is also possible. All production is packed to customers’ requirements and specifications. We can supply raw materials or we can work with the materials provided by the customer. Also, small orderings are available. The good thing is that we are in Europe so no waste of time and taxes.
