Only a few brands boast that their founder was born in 1855. Hamilton Carhartt, an example of an enterprising American, founded a company for the production of work clothes as early as 1889. His goal? Create a brand that everyone would look for, a brand rated for quality, durability and versatility.
Hamilton Carhartt himself said: "I believe that when a person wears a manufactured product, his self-esteem grows because he knows he is made by a honest producer who is honest to his employees." Because the Carhartt brand is still owned by the Hamilton Carhart family , products can be manufactured with the same basic principles that they had at the end of the 19th century - with honesty and quality. In 1989, a hundred years from the founding of the brand, Edwin Faeh began importing goods into Europe. Under the name Carhartt Work in Progress, the European chapter of the story of a cult brand has begun to be written, which has not been exclusively focused on working clothes but also on street fashion. Not always, long tradition is a guarantee of quality. At the Carhartt brand, yes.
