Who invented the clothes hanger?

Who invented the clothes hanger?


The history of the hanger

The original wire hanger was invented by pure necessity. In 1903, Albert J. Parkhouse working at the Timberlake Wire and Novelty Company, based in Jackson, Mississippi, United States of America, came to work and found himself unable to hang his coat yet again because all wooden beams were in use. To rectify the ongoing problem, he bent a piece of wire into two ovals with the ends twisted together to form a hook. Voilà! The first wire hanger was born.


Parkhose's original design largely unchanged, had some modifications, namely:

Schulyer C. Hewitt made a version of the hanger that had pieces of cardboard attached to the upper and lower parts to prevent wrinkles. A few years later, Elmer D. Rogers added a tube on the lower bar. The latter design is still used today.


Hangers today are easily accessible because you can buy them at Ziito. Our Ziito hanger is made of 4 mm thick quality steel with a total weight of 116 grams. It's thickness means that the steel does not intersect with the clothes that can be made by thinner metal straps. We have created a quality hanger that can not bend. We have made it our vision to create products that can be used and which can last for a long time. We have made it in a minimalist design, which is also practical. The hoop may have all the clothes hanging on. Depths make things to hang in the straps too.


We believe your clothes deserve only the best, not just the best clothes rack but also the best hangers. We provide them in black and silver and as such they beautifully match most of our clothes racks and those colours also match most of the clothes imaginable.
