History Uncovered...

...a short 45 mile ride from Seattle is Sultan WA.  A year plus ago a piece of Black Bear Brand history was uncovered; a painted advertisement sign from the 1920's.

 This touches on a deep and hidden history the Black Bear Brand has and we're working to resurrect. Black Manufacturing's Black Bear Brand has been part of the Pacific Northwest manufacturing community for almost 100 years, Black Bear Brand has stayed true to its original legacy of making durable and aesthetically-classic goods through a union of regional makers considered the best in their craft. Black Bear Brand keeps original founder George G. Black’s vision alive by making simple, straightforward, and durable garments while re-imagining the definitions of traditional workwear.

Sultan WA. Sultan City played an important role in the building of the Burlington Northern Railroad which runs east from Everett adjacent to the Skykomish River. During the railroad construction, Sultan was as a supply station employing (at times) over 800 men. This boom brought many new businesses to the area and in 1905 Sultan incorporated.
