Carhartt History - Where it started...
The year 1889 was a time of steel, steam, and locomotives.
It was also when Hamilton Carhartt & Company was founded by its namesake (known affectionately as “Ham”) and began producing overalls with two sewing machines and a half-horsepower electric motor in a small Detroit loft. Early failures led Hamilton to focus heavily on market research, and after talking directly with railroad workers, he designed a product that truly fit their needs. Under the motto, “Honest value for an honest dollar,” the Carhartt bib overall was created and rapidly evolved into the standard for quality workwear.
"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."
