Relwen was founded in 2007, based on the idea of being a product of an American working heritage. Heavily influenced by the fields, farms, and great lakes of Ohio and Michigan where they were fortunate enough to grow up around.

    Their ultimate aim is to always be able to produce function and quality of character that will serve for years of wear.

    Their icon, the barn swallow, represents their agrarian roots. This swift and highly adaptable bird closely cohabitates with us, nesting in man-made structures and feasting on insects detrimental to crops. Longevity of its nests are legendary, one was reported to have been occupied for forty-eight years.

    Which reinforces their mission…to create the kind of clothing that works and will remain relevant and lasting, a hundred years from now.
