A brief story of the brand
• In 1952 Nathan Swartz, a shoe stitcher by trade, bought half-interest in the Abington Shoe Company of Abington,Massachusetts, a firm that had been incorporated in 1933. Within three years, Nathan acquired the remaining interest in the company. For the next decade, father and sons produced and sold handmade footwear todiscount outlets and stores that put house labels on them. The Swartz family developed the Timberland brand name in 1973 and created its first guaranteed waterproof boot under the Timberland name. In1978 the Swartz family changed the name of the company to The Timberland Company. • Although Timberland became a household name through a fluke of fashion, the company's outdoor footwear andaccessories also became synonymous with quality, dependability, and a return to nature. Along the way, the company also became well-known for its commitment to community service. • The brand name comes fromthe composition of two words: Timber which means wood (lumberjacks yell TIMBER when the tree is loose and will fall) and Land means land.
