Carharrt: Rich and Varied
Carhartt Heritage is providing innovative design
As you’d expect from a company with a 119 year history the background of Carhartt is rich and varied. Carhartt Inc. was established Carhartt was born in Detroit in 1889 and started life as a workwear label, the last 119 years have seen it grow to dominate American workwear. Following the assimilation of blue collar workwear by American youth in the late eighties Work In Progress started to import Union-made Carhartt product into Europe and Carhartt Street wear was born. Now with 50 stand-alone stores from London to Tokyo, Carhartt prides itself in making clothing which reflects the original company ethos along with supporting the most progressive parts of street culture.
For over 120 years Carhartt has been dedicated to its mission of providing best In Class apparel for the active worker. Standing for rugged construction, innovative design and exceptional standards of quality, durability and comfort, Carhartt workwear has become a legend in the skilled trades.
Easily Carhartt grew to one of the leading brands within the European Street wear scene. Carhartt is present in many different subcultures but still sticking to the core idea of providing innovative design and exceptional standards of quality, durability and still heavily influenced by its American roots, Carhartt Europe offers a more lifestyle based collection for everyday wear utilising the American heritage to the fullest – using long lasting materials and classic cuts.
The line is made of classic materials and colours to create that authentic vintage look and feel. This effect is made possible by special vintage washings and dyes only available in the Heritage line. All prints are reproductions of original graphics that honour the legacy of Carhartt Inc. workwear. Autumn/Winter 2011 sees the first standalone Carhartt Heritage collection.
The new collection has seen a complete overhaul and includes some great outerwear, knits, shirting, t-shirts and accessories. Some key pieces shown below are, Klondike Japanese Selvedge jeans, Carhartt Heritage Chapel Blacksmith Check Shirt and the Cahartt Heritage t-shirts.
