About Us

Imagewear specializes in uniquely designed children’s apparel. Our products are competitively priced so that the average family can afford them. We are committed to serving the needs of our customers by providing excellent customer service.

To help that goal we recently moved to a new state- of-the- art building in New Jersey. Today our products can be found in over 1400 stores and we look forward to adding you to our list of happy customers.


Building positive and long-term relationships with our customers is our commitment. We constantly work with our customers to ensure that we are providing products that they can resell to the end consumer.

We mainly distribute our products to specialty stores and boutiques around the world. For more information on becoming a re-seller, please call our customer service department 212-594-4853.


We value your ship dates and your need to receive the products on time. Our Customer Service Department and Sales Team work very closely with our buyers to ensure our customers get their products as needed. Generally, orders are placed three to four months prior to delivery. We ship throughout the USA and to over 200 countries worldwide.


In 1962, Irene Friedman and her son Leo saw an opportunity to import fine quality children’s apparel to the United States of America. Together they started Friedknit Creations. After a few years of growth the company started its own manufacturing with one goal in mind, to provide the consumer with finely made garments at a price the average family could afford.

As the company grew it became evident that larger facilities were needed, therefore they moved the manufacturing to the Philippines. With these new facilities they expanded into fine smocked woven wear in addition to the fine knit wear that the company was already famous for. Today we are proud to be in our third generation of making beautifully designed and well-made children’s apparel.
