The story of Carhartt WIP: pioneer in the workwear industry

The history of the brand began in 1889 with the manufacture of traditional work clothing. Hamilton Carhartt , the founder of the brand, is targeting the American workwear market. The first clothes were produced using just four sewing machines and five employees. The first piece created by the brand is the essential overalls in cotton canvas or denim. The garment that always makes us dream so much!

The years go by and the company continues to develop. The company sets up cotton factories in the United States: Georgia, South Carolina, Detroit, Dallas and San Francisco.

The American brand also played an important role during the First World War in 1914, by producing work uniforms for the military. With a total of 17 factories at that time, the Carhartt company, a victim of its own success, reached new heights with economic success during the first two decades of the 20th century. The brand was still present during the Second World War. Our dear soldiers are calling on the brand's know-how to satisfy their need for robust and durable clothing.
