The Carhartt Heritage line


The Carhartt Heritage line is dedicated to Carhartt’s long history as a reputable workwear brand. The line is made of classic materials and colours to create that authentic vintage look and feel. This effect is made possible by special vintage washings and dyes only available in the Heritage line. All prints are reproduc- tions of original graphics that honor the legacy of Car- hartt Inc. workwear. Retro-style details accompanied by a special Heritage hangtag highlight the exceptional character of this line.

A replica of the brand’s first logo, a train car superim- posed on a heart – Carhartt, forms the Heritage label and helps to distinguish the Heritage line from the rest of the Carhartt collection. Pants are made from origi- nal fabrics and though they are based on Carhartt’s historic work pants, the cut has been reworked to suit the contemporary consumer. Sweaters are made from classic materials and printed with traditional ink for authentic character. Vintage-style yarn sweaters and t-shirts are made from slub yarn; a special yarn pro- duced using traditional methods. The soft, thick nubs of the yarn appear as irregularities in the woven fabric, giving it a distinctive knitted surface and retro impres- sion. A new printing process combined with traditional textile ink re-creates the appearance of vintage prints.

This way, prints are fused into the fabric and don’t have the rubbery shine of modern designs. Hems and seams are stitched in time-honored fashion, employing the same patterns and methods used fifty years ago. Additionally, some items are washed for a faded effect.

Celebrate this new line within the Carhartt collection that is dedicated to the great legacy of Carhartt, Inc., and consider the wise words: to know your future, you must know your past.
