Portsmouth is a quintessential New England city tucked in the southeast corner of New Hampshire and home to an incredible list of local businesses, both new and old. Companies like Baileyworks, Independent Fabrications, and Grain Surf are just some examples of businesses that stay true to the industrial history of the state while servicing their consumers on a global level and keeping focus on everything that is good about local manufacturing.
Likely, the biggest name in the Portsmouth area is The Timberland Company, who in 1969 relocated the business from Boston to the area and continue to employ a good number of New Englanders at their world headquarters. On a recent visit, Timberland offered us a look at their forthcoming collections, while bringing focus to others’ businesses that carry the Made-in-New Hampshire badge.
Even though the company moved much of its manufacturing the Dominican Republic, they remain committed to American manufacturing through the USA-made Timberland Boot Co. collection, produced in Arkansas. The Timberland Boot Co. collection uses sourced leathers from Chicago’s Horween as well as Vibram soles from Massachusetts. Look for strong stitch lines on chukka-style mid-top and wingtip boots in various tans of leathers. The collection is well considered and a perfect addition to your footwear game.
