Carhartt was born In Detroit in 1889, under the leadership of Hamilton Carhartt. His first products were work overalls made of denim fabric and duck, commonly called canvas.
This later became Carhartt´s trademark fabric. Since the early years the brand became dedicated to providing “Best In Class” apparel, tailored to meet the highest standards of quality, durability and comfort in the work environment, Duck Canvas is enjoying increased popularity due to its unique ageing properties and the demand for authentic styles
Founded in 1994, Work In Progress initiated a distribution network for Carhartt across Europe, introducing a selection of classic products from the original work wear range into a new market. Success was immediate; the authentic Carhartt products quickly became popular with both fans of traditional US heritage garments and with the nascent European urban culture scene. reinterpreted for todays consumer the brand is now firmly established with the more discerning fashion consumer who does not want their wardrobe to suffer the vagaries of fashion
