Richlu Manufacturing and its Tough Duck brand build on the foundation of doing what it takes to get the job done. Abraham Rich; a 5th generation clothier and immigrant from Eastern Europe founded Tough Duck 80+ years ago. The key value he instilled in everyone who worked for him was the need to work as hard as the people who would be wearing Tough Duck clothing.
While working as a fabric cutter for a local sewing company Abraham had a strong desire to create quality garments of his own. When the workday ended, he would go home and would create pant designs and samples. After asking for a $1/hour raise, he was handed a pink slip when he picked up his next paycheque. This gave him the push to start his own clothing business. Abraham borrowed $400 from a friend and formed Winnipeg Pants and Manufacturing Ltd. which led to the creation of Tough Duck Outerwear.
Tough Duck has a history of designing and manufacturing quality garments that protect people in the toughest environments, whether they’re at work or play. They've taken their knowledge of crafting long-lasting and safe working apparel and elevated it to Tough Duck Black Label.
The materials used in the line are animal-free and incorporate reflective safety features to keep people visible when they’re out living life. Designed and manufactured in downtown Winnipeg, Canada, Tough Duck Black Label is backed by a lifetime guarantee against defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the product.
