We are excited to announce the launch of 1881 Apparel, an apparel company created by E.E. Ward co-owner Dominique Brooks. This apparel line encompasses the history and culture of E.E. Ward Moving & Storage. It was created to ensure that this historical black business legacy is never forgotten and to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit in today’s society.
1881 Apparel exemplifies all it means to be 1881 strong- a concept that E.E. Ward is very familiar with. The Ward’s entrepreneurial spirit and legacy of enduring slavery, the U.S. Civil War, Great Depression, two world wars, Great Recession, and 26 presidential terms will never be forgotten, and now this piece of U.S. history is uniting with fashion!
Entrepreneurs and dreamers can own a piece of history that inspires them to take action in writing their own script and live like the iconic John T. Ward. The apparel line is more than clothing, it is a movement- as it will evolve into more than a brand, but will also foster and support the growth of young entrepreneurs to achieve. The movement is about being 1881 Strong in the 21st century!!!
