In the German Swabian Mountains, the majority of the people had been farmers for centuries already. But when the ground became increasingly infertile around 1850, and the famers and their families started starving, the government distributed hand knitting machines to the poor farmers so that they could earn their money with knitting.
The descendants of Balthasar Merz allowed Peter Plotnicki to use the brand name in order to carry on the family's tradition and history.
