The Carhartt Brand began with Hamilton Carhartt who founded the Carhartt factory in Detroit, Michigan in 1889. Carhartt tailored their clothing to accommodate the large shipbuilding industry as this era predated Ford’s “Motor Town”. They predominately made overalls out of that signature duck fabric that was commonly used for ship sails and tents.
