Filson was founded in 1850 by C C. Filson and later moved from Washington to Seattle. In 1897, Fison opened C.C. Filson’s Pioneer Alaska Clothing and Blanket Manufacturers, specializing in goods to outfit the stampede of the Klondike Gold Rush. It was for these rugged conditions that Filson designed his goods. He owned his own mill and manufactured Mackinaw Wool Clothing and blankets. Filson kept in close contact with his customers, improving his goods to meet their specific needs.

Since its inception Filson has continued to make quality goods that are guaranteed for life. Every product is made from the best possible materials, designed to be worn in and built to last, Filson’s name has become synonymous with reliability and durability.
