When measured in years, J.W. Hulme Company shares its amount of history with Red Wing Shoes. Both brands started back in 1905 and both were founded in Minnesota. J.W. Hulme Co. began as a manufacturer of canvas tents in world war I and II. After the wars they started producing leather bags and accessories for sport hunters.
Up until 1997 a big part of the production was focused on production of private labels for other brands like Gokey and Orvis. When Orvis started their own production and doing it overseas, J.W Hulme Co. began building their own brand. All products produced in the USA carry a lifetime guarantee.
