In 1876, Wade Davis & Company, the precursor to Whiting & Davis, is founded by William H. Wade, Edward P. Davis and Louis Heckman in Massachusetts. In 1892 Mr. Whiting designs the first mesh bag, with all rings formed and joined by hand. By 1912 a machine is invented to automate the mesh making process.
The renowned and prolific Elsa Schiaparelli designs for Whiting & Davis in the mid 30s, introducing several new, more modern shapes to the line.
