Cool Stuff Being Made: Woolrich, Inc.

By June 2, 2007Cool Stuff Being Made

S07a_header_logo_150.gifOur “Cool Stuff Being Made” video this week brings us to Woolrich, PA, home of — not hard to guess — the great American mill and clothing manufacturer, Woolrich Clothing. Woolrich has been making sports and outdoor wear since 1830 in the United States (you can see a nice history here).

Today, the company crafts more than 300 products, using several hundred fabrics. You’ll definitely recognize the Woolrich “red and black” plaid. This week’s tour takes you throughout the Woolrich operations, and you’ll see a winter parka head out the door at the end of the day. Welcome summer!

As always, our thanks to Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) for supplying the video and keeping us abreast of all the great manufacturing going on in the Keystone State. To watch this week’s “Cool Stuff Being Made” video, please click here.
