Over 170 years ago, John Rich made his way traveling from logging camp to logging camp selling fabrics, socks, coverlets and yarn from the back of a mule cart. The loggers' wives then made clothing from the fabric and yarns. As you can imagine 1830 was a time when the western frontier was largely undiscovered, oceans of buffalo were hunted by Native Americans, and the eastern states were just beginning to settle. 1830 also marked the year that John Rich being only 25 opened his first woolen mill in Plum Run, Pennsylvania. By 1835 the mill expanded and it was moved to what is known today as Woolrich, Pennsylvania.
The Woolrich product lines are made with tempo of a forging nation that in its ever marching motion forward needs a form of utility, function and protection from the elements and environment - a combined design synthesis of a simple beauty - but became a an extremely integral part in the building of a nation.
