Traditional Textiles. Timeless Performance.

Wool, canvas, and leather clothing in 2016?

They may sound quaint in these days of synthetics. But scientist, designers, and fabric mills have tinkered for decades to breed out quirks that hamper long term performance of their gear. Try as they might, they just can’t teach plastic to ‘live’ on our bodies.

This is the Empire Wool and Canvas Company. We’re not here to replicate the technology you see on store shelves. Chic designs and flashy fabrics are great for hair-raising sports. They don’t keep up when you’re going the distance. Our task is to harness the steady function of natural fibers, and blend it with those modern traits that ensure comfort and durability.

We believe that your garments, hand wear, and footwear should work the same way every day, despite age, wear, and exposure to the elements. So we take care to build stuff that will last longer, work harder, and recover from the damage that comes with real world use. Our goal is to sell you a great product- once. Your task is to wear your mitten palms smooth on the Hickory of an axe, collect generations of puppy hair on our wool, and listen for miles on end as your shell whispers against the brush.
