As a tribute to the Ohio-centered roots of E.E. Ward Moving & Storage Co., 1881 Apparel now has the Ohio 1881 Strong Collection, which includes kids shirts and ladies tank tops. The expansion of 1881 Apparel also includes 1881 Strong hats.
E.E. Ward is the nation’s oldest black-owned business and was founded in 1881 by John T. Ward, who started the company with just two horses and a wagon. Through its 137-year old history, E.E. Ward has endured slavery, the U.S. Civil War, Great Depression, Great Recession, and 26 presidential terms. 1881 Apparel is a movement that inspires others to be 1881 Strong in the 21st century.
Fashion and history unite to honor Ward’s family legacy.
Ohio 1881 Strong collection and 1881 hats are now available to purchase at www.shop1881.com.
