Woolrich was established in 1830 in north central Pennsylvania by founder John Rich. Today, it is the oldest American outdoor clothing brand, encompassing two distinctive labels: Woolrich, the contemporary high-end outerwear line distributed worldwide and Woolrich Outdoor, designed by the Japanese partner outdoor specialist Goldwin.
With 190 years of experience and a rich American heritage, Woolrich products integrate the brand’s historical identity with a contemporary interpretation. The original Woolrich Arctic Parka, introduced in 1972, is now considered the quintessential down parka and is an internationally recognized brand icon and symbol. Woolrich collections are distributed in EMEA, North America and APAC through a network of 32 stores worldwide. The Woolrich brand is owned by Woolrich International, a new entity created in 2016 after the merger between Woolrich Inc. and Woolrich Europe, that combines 190 years of American heritage and value for the outdoors with contemporary European design. In 2018 the investment fund L-Gam became the majority stakeholder to support the brand’s international growth. Wholesale E: service@woolrich.com Photo credit: Woolrich
