Carhartt Clothing was established in 1889 in Detroit, Michigan by Hamilton Carhartt and for over 120 years 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, their workwear has become a legend in many skilled trades. Since 1994 Carhartt has been distributed in Europe through Work In Progress Textilhandels GmbH. In 1997 the first selection of pieces made especially for the European market were added to the regular collection and the brand soon grew to one of the leading brands within the European Streetwear scene. Today, the brand is known for a supreme collection and its dedicated support of upcoming artists, musicians, skateboarders and BMX riders. With it's own skate and BMX team and the support of internationally recognised events such as the Rebel Jam and the European Skateboard Championships, the brand is present in many different subcultures but is still sticking to the core idea of providing innovative design and exceptional standards of quality, durability and comfort.
