• American goods tend to retain a questionable reputation pertaining to fabric, design and performance, but Archival Clothing is setting a new tone and placing their mark on history. With a new look into their upcoming release, Archival Clothing focuses this collection on producing domestically made products they consider to be the “best in category”.
Archival Clothing found their early beginnings August of 2009 and founded on the goal of creating products that the owners Leslie and Lynn would stand by. Their hard-work and loyalty to their passion lead to local Oregon-based manufacturing partnerships, and a chance to choose from the highest quality materials to work with, such as US-sourced duck and waxed fabrics, Horween leather, brass hardware, and webbing from the UK to name a few. Blogging about field testing heritage apparel was the start up and quickly evolved into a dynamic company. With collections evolving and newer designs assembling Archival Clothing stays true to their oath to support US-based apparel companies. Future goals for this growing brand consist of stimulate the domestic market and encourage US manufacturers to expand their offerings.
