About Us

About Naturally Rugged


Naturally Rugged was established in 1987 and built a reputation as a company recognized nationwide for its exceptional line of clothing, customer service and consumer satisfaction.

Brother and sister team, Jeff Broughton and Tammy Quantrell, liked the product so much that when the opportunity became available they purchased the company in 2013 and will keep the tradition alive. They are owners of an existing family business, Kennedy's Flags and Specialty Sewing.  Proud suppliers of wind products of exceptional quality, they will be bringing their expertise and family values to the Naturally Rugged products to ensure that they continue to produce comfortable and durable garment dyed, cotton clothing for casual, travel and adventure wear.

It is their mission to meet the needs of their customers, keep the pricing competitive and deliver quality that is second to none.

About Our Product


All of our products are produced in our factory in Erin, Ontario to ensure we achieve the greatest quality.  We use two types of 100% cotton fabrics and carefully dye each garment with our unique dying process.  Once you browse our catalogue, you will be delighted to find that our lines are a favourite wardrobe must-have for both men and women.

Rugged Wear is made from an 8oz cotton with a brushed fleece lining and each item is pre-shrunk to be durable and soft, yet sturdy.  The carefully applied dye gives us our unique weathered look and broken in appearance that only gets better with time.

Breezy Wear is made with a lightweight 4.5oz crinkle cotton that will keep you cool and comfortable in warm and even humid temperatures.  Worn for gardening and casual wear the pieces are stylish enough to travel or cruise in!

Both lines offer different styles and colours sure to please everyone.  By using the highest quality cotton, pre-shrinking and applying a unique dying process we can ensure that every garment has the broken-in softness and timeless appeal that made us famous.

General Clothing Care

Shrinkage:  All Naturally Rugged cotton garments have been pre-washed and pre-shrunk to ensure absolutely no shrinkage.

Easy care:  The advantage of wearing Naturally Rugged 100% pre-shrunk clothing is easy care.  Wash in any temperature water, warm to cold, throw it in the dryer for as long as you want....you can't shrink it!  As with all garment dyed clothing, there will be a gentle fade of colours over time.  Because our fabics are a cotton and not a poly/cotton blend our gentle fleece lining will not ball up or "pill", in fact our clothes actually become more comfortable with each passing wash and wear cycle.

Normal Care:  Wash in warm or cool water and machine dry.

Heavy Dirt or Stains:  Garment dyed clothing requires special care when treating for stains.  You can apply a commercial pre-wash product, allow the product to work into the fabric for a few minutes, then wash and dry as normal.  DO NOT SCRUB THE PRE-WASH PRODUCT ON THE GARMENT it will remove the dye.  

Oil Stains: Dab oil spots in dish washing liquid and then wash and dry as normal.

Sizing And Colours


Size Chart

Naturally Rugged Clothing is 100% pre-shrunk cotton.  The size chart is our guideline to help choose your size.  Due to different body styles and shapes, we cannot guarantee your fit until the garment is put on.


Colour Chart

Naturally Rugged Clothing is Garment Dyed.  We love that each garment is unique with it's own shading and colour variations.  Our clothing is intended to have a slight colour fade and soften with every wash, making it more comfortable.  Some colour shades may transfer to skin and other clothing, therefore, we recommend washing before wearing.  Please note that this colour chart is the best representation of the clothing we could achieve on a computer monitor.
