It all started in 1889 with a determination to make an overall garment specifically for the railroad worker that had never been made before. Today, Carhartt, a namesake of founder Hamilton Carhartt, has withstood the test of time and and continues to provide Best-In-Class apparel for the active worker.
“Today, less than 2% of apparel purchased in the U.S. is actually made in the U.S.”
In our area, Carhartt items are everywhere you look. From the littlest fans (Princess P has a pink Carhartt coat!) to their parents, people wear Carhartt apparel not only because they are quality made items, but because many of their legendary products are made right here in the USA!
“Since 1998, Carhartt has made 57 million pieces of apparel in the United States.”
Carhartt’s “Made in the USA” line features seven of the company’s most iconic garments, including the Men’s Duck Active Jac and the Men’s Double-Front Work Dungaree’s. Each of the hardworking products from the “Made in the USA” line are built in four factories in Kentucky and Tennessee where 2,000 American workers, including over 900 UFCW members, are employed.
With the Holiday shopping season rapidly approaching, be sure to check out the awesome products from Carhartt’s “Made in the USA” line for the hard worker on your list. I spotted the Women’s Fair Isle Pattern Wool Blend Boot Sock and was thinking that a pair of these would make a perfect stocking stuffer for my mom, or myself!
For the hardworking man on your list, like my father who works outdoors, the Carhartt Men’s Duck Active Jac – Thermal Lined. This active jac is built with 12-ounce, firm-hand, 100% ring-spun cotton duck with a 100% polyester thermal lining for on-the-job warmth. The Men’s Duck Active Jac – Thermal Lined includes a thermal-lined hood, rib-knit cuffs and waist that works to keep out the cold and also includes two large hand-warmer pockets and two convenient inside pockets.
