It all began in 1937 in Portland, Oregon, when the Lamfrom family, fleeing Nazi Germany and settling in a new city, bought a hat distribution company. Almost immediately they changed its name to 'Columbia'. The brand was named after the Columbia River, which flows through Portland. After 1948, frustration with suppliers led the family to start manufacturing their own products, and the Columbia Hat Company name was changed to Columbia Sportswear. The products you'll find in the brand's range includes bum bags, jackets, sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats, and much more. The brand has always had a strong focus on quality and design, and it's simple patterns and prints make Columbia clothing fit almost every style.
