Carhartt WIP was founded in 1889 by its eponym Hamilton Carhartt and has since then been the first choice for workwear in the USA. Due to straight cuts and the use of sturdy materials, Carhartt WIP’s collections are not only popular among men, but are now also in among women and kids worldwide. Especially outerwear, as for example the Carhatt WIP Anchorage Parka and the Carhartt WIP Kodiak Jacket score when temperatures go sub-zero.

Work in Progress – A Tradition Brand in the Course of Time

Established in Detroit, Michigan, Carhartt started with producing workwear and overalls for the resident railroad workers of the railroad companies. Over time, the brand accommodated to the needs of other occupational groups and developed water and fire-resistant materials as well as pants and jeans with seams and rivets. Many of the Carhartt designs were and still are designated for workers on ranches, farms and construction sites.  

Since the mid-90s, Carhartt has also established itself with the specifically founded brand Carhartt Work in Progress (Carhartt WIP) in the skate and fashion sector. The urban city life cannot be imagined without the classic cargo pants, beanies, sweatshirts, backpacks and jackets showing the iconic logo. In 1997, the first Carhartt WIP collection for women was a giant stride towards equality, especially for a company that responds to a male-dominated working society.

Then and Now – Innovative Technology from the House of Carhartt

With regard to technologies, Carhartt WIP also absolutely moves with the times. Now, proprietary innovations as FastDry®, Force®, Storm Defender™ and Rain Defender™ label the outerwear of the brand. Thanks to these patents, Carhartt WIP streetwear has developed into the indispensable all-rounder for all weather conditions.

Moreover, the sturdiness that was approved in the turn-of-the-century factories is combined with the comfortable cuts and hence makes Carhartt WIP a perfect companion in any situation. In summer and in winter, indoors and outdoors, at work or on your skateboard – After 125 years, Carhartt remains true to its principles. Real craftsmanship made in the U.S.!
