“The year 1889 was a time of steel, smoke, and locomotives.
Starting with only 2 sewing machines and 5 employees, Hamilton Carhartt established Hamilton Carhartt & Company. At first, he failed. But after asking railroad workers what exactly they needed, he succeeded. Under the motto “Honest value for an honest dollar,” the Carhartt union-made bib overall was created, and with it an ideal garment for workers.
By 1910 Carhartt had grown to include mills in South Carolina and Georgia, as well as sewing facilities in Atlanta, Detroit, Dallas, San Francisco, Walkerville, Toronto, Vancouver, and Liverpool. A Paris facility and a New York office and warehouse followed later.
Today, Carhartt employs over 2,000 U.S. associates in Detroit, Kentucky, and Tennessee, including over 900 UFCW members. Last year, over 7,000,000 garments were produced in four American factories. We’re proud that we’ve never stopped making workwear in the USA for 125 years. Carhartt. Outworking them all since 1889.”
