Welcome to Canton, Ohio in the heart of the Rust Belt - known in the roaring 20’s as Little Chicago for its booming bootleg operations, organized crime, and general overachievement in vice. Canton marks the halfway point between New York City and Chicago, and the city was a hub of hustle and bustle.
Today, there’s a magical movement taking place in Rust Belt cities like Cleveland, Akron, Canton... It’s a rebirth of American Regionalism. People are coming back. Industries are emerging and committing to stay. Economies are on the rise. Arts and culture are drawing people back to downtown.
We love northeast Ohio, and the special bond that people from this place share. We are a different breed. We’re tough. We’re scrappy. But we’re hopeful for the future. And we’re pretty hip right now.
Little Chicago Clothing Co. is a locally owned business in Canton, Ohio founded by a husband and wife who want to contribute to the rebirth of Canton and its surrounding communities. For us, Canton is home. It’s a city of football. A city of steel. A city of grit and work ethic, pulling itself up by the bootstraps to become strong again. Little Chicago’s designs call upon that local pride.
When you buy and wear a Little Chicago t-shirt, you’re taking that step toward revitalizing your community. Every town has a story. But those stories are written by people and experiences. Every time you wear or see our shirts, you’re reminded of that story… that you’re a part of. They remind you of where you came from.
This - Little Chicago Clothing Co. - this is for Canton. This is about giving back to the community that has given us so much. Jobs. Pride. Happiness. There’s a momentum growing. Now is the time.
