Worshipful Company of Framework Knitters

The Worshipful Company of Framework Knitters is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The Company was incorporated by a Royal Charter of 1657; it was granted livery status in 1713. Unlike many other Companies, the Framework Knitters' Company has retained close connections to its original trade, most members of the Company being involved with the craft. The Company does not, however, function only as a trade association of knitters, also supporting various charities. The Feltmakers' Company ranks sixty-fourth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Speed, Strength and Truth United.
