HOW DID WOODS™ START?

HOW DID WOODS™ START?

Woods™ was created in 1885 by James Woods, who supplied lumbermen, miners, surveyors and other pioneers with gear and equipment to work and explore the Canadian frontier.

In 1895, Woods opened a manufacturing facility, producing tents, sleeping bags, and canvas bags. He invented a light canvas that had exceptional waterproofing and with this, the company’s reputation grew internationally; for example, it supplied British troops in the Boer War from1899 to 1902. Around this time, it was also outfitting many “stampeders” for their journeys and adventures during the Klondike Goldrush.

Throughout its history, Woods™ and the company have been part of many firsts in Canadian Historical moments, most notably; the first sailing of the Northwest Passage (1906); supplying the first team to reach the South Pole (1911); the first ascent of Canada's highest peak, Mount Logan (1925); and supplying Laurie Skreslet when he became the first Canadian to reach the summit of Mount Everest (1982). The company even produced the first gas masks for the Canadian Army.

In the 1950s, the Woods™ popularity grew rapidly – thanks largely to the use of the automobile for recreation purposes – and with it, the product range expanded to include bags for mail carriers and railway laundry, piano covers, horse blankets, canvas car garages, life preservers, golf bags…even bags for hockey equipment!
