Wiges has a long history of textile and clothing production and retail. The name Wiges dates from the 1930s and a variety of small groups of companies, sole traders and trading companies in and around Gothenburg. The first steps towards Wiges in its current form were taken in 1977, with new owners and a new limited company format. At the same time a change was made to the focus of the range, moving away from home textiles and towards the current broad assortment of socks, underwear and clothing. In 1980, the business moved to its current premises in Kinna, which actually housed a knitwear factory in the 1930s. No production takes place at the site today, but the knowledge certainly lives on. Since 2000, Wiges has also had its own purchasing office in Dalian, China.
