Stifel “Wabash Stripe”

Stifel Stripe, commonly referred to as “Wabash Stripe”, is a calico print work wear fabric originating in 1835 in West Virginia. 


Around the turn of the century many Railroads began standardizing uniforms among their workers. Stifel Stripe became widely preferred across multiple Railroad companies due to its incredible durability and almost formal appearance.  


This iconic fabric became especially popular among hard working Americans in many fields of work during the 1890’s-1930’s though it was not uncommon to see Stifel Stripe in limited use throughout the 1940s and early 1950s, until the mill closed in 1956.


Today Stifel Stripe is reproduced in small batches with exacting detail to the original fabric.
