Carhartt has been a leader in the workwear clothing industry for over a century. In the 1980s and 90s Carhartt became a popular fashion trend when popular rappers started wearing the brand. Today, whether it's worn for work or for fashion, Carhartt clothing is still popular with men, women, and even kids.
Carhartt was founded in 1889 when founder Hamilton Carhartt set out a goal to provide quality, durable workwear for railroad workers. The brand had mills in South Carolina and Georgia, and sewing facilities in Detroit, Dallas, Atlanta and San Francisco in 1901. Carhartt was once a booming American manufacturer, but where is Carhartt made today?
Is Carhartt made in USA?
American textile and clothing industries hit hard times in the 1980s and 90s. Many moved manufacturing overseas to keep product costs low, and Carhartt was one of them. When demand for the brand increased and their product line expanded, Carhartt moved most manufacturing and finishing to Mexico. They did keep four facilities open stateside in Tennessee and Kentucky, so there are still some Carhartt clothing items made in the USA.
Made in USA Carhartt Products
Made in USA Carhartt clothing items can be tricky to find. A “made in USA” search on the Carhartt website results in a large selection of items, however, when checking the descriptions many of these items are listed as “imported”. I did notice that there are some items with a “Made in USA” image sticker. These items are verified American made in the description.
American made Carhartt clothing can be hard to find in stores too. I checked several big box stores near me and found NO coats, overalls, pants, shirts, and hats with “Made in USA” on the label.
Below I have listed made in USA Carhartt products that I have found online.
