The Indianapolis Glove Company was established in 1904 by Brodehurst Elsey (1878– 1968) and Charles F. Zwick (1869–1946). It was known for producing Red Apple work gloves with a logo consisting of an apple and the words “Indian Apple Us Gloves.” Over several decades, the company grew to be the country’s third largest manufacturer of work gloves, offering more than six hundred styles of gloves under different labels for various industries.
