It all began in 1989 when two brothers clad in plaid and ready to face the great wilderness noted a mishmash of creatively (although less-than-optimal) homemade toolboxes and buckets. After realizing there had to be a better way, the Bucket Boss was born. This tool organizer was rugged, durable, organized, and built to get the job done. And so, Duluth Trading came to be. Throughout the years, the products and offerings changed and evolved, but the focus always remained on finding ways to make it easier to get the job done. Today's assortments includes everything from workwear to the tools of many trades.
