Since 1997, more than 600 textile factories have closed in the U.S. Today, less than 2% of the apparel purchased in the U.S. is actually made in the U.S.
Carhartt gear is part of that 2%.
Since 1998, Carhartt has made 57 million pieces of apparel in the U.S. and everything Carhartt makes is designed in Dearborn, Michigan.
Carhartt employs 2,300 American workers and more than 1,000 UFCW union members. The “Made in the USA” line is inspired by American workers and features seven of their most iconic garments. This line is built in four factories in Kentucky and Tennessee.
In 2012, Carhartt purchased 16 million pounds of U.S. cotton from Mt. Vernon mills in Georgia. That’s enough American cotton to cover more than 16,000 football fields.
