Two century ago, in the year 1848, batches of Chinese set sail to San Francisco due to the worldwide influence of California Gold Rush, in a vessel named "American Eagle". Apart from the gold rush, Chinese immigrants, mainly from the Canton province, were being used to build the First Transcontinental Railroad that connected the Pacific Coast at San Francisco Bay. It was a tremendous contribution to begin Chinese settlement in American soil.
In 1874, a Chinese by the name of CHEANG QUAN WO patented an original design for DENIM OVERALLS. He was the only Chinese immigrant that had participated in origin of OVERALLS recorded in the books. CHEANG's involvement in OVERALLS era has now become a respected legacy that inspired Chinese DENIM OVERALLS culture.
The word, "DaaiFau" is a direct translation from Cantonese dialect which means harbour. During that period, most Chinese did not speak English and to refer to San Francisco harbour, they called it "DaaiFau". Base on historical records, we name this OVERALLS as "DaaiFau" and design it with his inspiration in the year 1874.
