Our Namesake


In July of 1795 after Boston's historic deep-water landing, Long Wharf, saw the arrival of royal governors, pirates, and British troops, a young New Englander cast off across the Atlantic on a merchant tall ship. After exploring foreign cultures and the production of fine goods for over a year, he returned home to set up a retail shop on Long Wharf. Inspired by his journey, he founded several mills that would drive imports and exports in America during the 1800s.

Those mills employed hard-working men and women throughout the 1900s, when our great-grandfather became a wool sorter and helped produce some of the highest quality textiles in the world.

Founded in 2015, Long Wharf Supply Co. carries on the tradition by producing fine goods for everyday adventures - by land or by sea.
