Diamond Brand was established in Philadelphia in 1881 as Diamond Brand Canvas Products. Since that time, we have been a leader in the manufacturing of fabric-based sewn gear. In 1920, we began to manufacture tarpaulins and other similar heavy canvas products. In 1931, we manufactured the very first backpack for the Boy Scouts of America. Today, we manufacture a wide variety of products including military gear, outdoor gear, and water sports gear for many different customers including the United States Department of Defense and the Boy Scouts of America.
