Hamilton Carhartt founded his namesake company in 1889 and began making work wear with a single goal in mind: Set a standard of excellence to which all others would aspire. Starting with only 4 sewing machines and about 5 employees, the first products manufactured were overalls in duck and denim fabrics. Carhartt Master Cloth was designed and woven especially by their mills for use in Carhartt garments and was pledged to be the best cloth that could be produced. Hamilton Carhartt passed away in 1937 at the age of 82. Today, his company remains a family owned operation committed to the mission of providing Best-in-Class apparel for the active worker. Indian Hill Trading Post carries a large selection of Carhartt clothing.
