Carhartt, Made For The American Worker, By American Workers

Everyone knows the clothing brand, Carhartt.  They make the clothes for people who work outside all day long.  Carhartt has been an American company since 1889 and are growing stronger every year.

The Carhartt brand was started by Hamilton Carhartt who believed as much in workers as he did in his clothes.  He once said

“I believe that when a man wears an article that I manufacture, his self-respect is increased because he knows that it is made by an honest manufacturer, who is honest with his employees”
Hamilton Carhartt

Carhartt manufactures thousands of different types of clothes from rugged overalls to cool and comfortable t-shirts.  They make these clothes at two facilities in the United States and other facilities around the world.

While I would love to say that all the products they made were made here in the United States, I am still happy to say they have created a “Made in the USA” line. This line of clothing is made by UFCW union members at the Tennessee and Kentucky Mills.  These clothes will have a special ‘Made in the USA’ Logo (see right).

Carhartt serves the blue collar worker and now it is time for the blue collar workers to support Carhartt’s Made in the USA Line.  We need to show the rest of the clothing manufactures that clothes ‘Made in the USA’ sell better than any other brand.

Below is a video created by Carhartt that explains their dedication to the American Worker and to American manufacturing.
