filson-flagship1For 118 years now, Filson has been a manufacturer of legendary gear for those who love the great outdoors. From loggers and miners to urban dwellers who yearn for rugged yet stylish fashion and accessories, Filson has definitely stood the test of time in a very fickle retail category.

And, in an age where everything is made overseas, the company has bucked the trend and has continued to manufacture its products in Seattle’s rapidly growing SODO district. Now that its new flagship store has opened, customers can not only shop until they drop, but also watch Filson products being made right there, thanks to the expansive glass that opens up into the factory.

Filson is definitely one of Washington’s Business Legends and we are proud that they have chosen to not only remain here, but to expand with their new store, corporate headquarters and factory at 1741 1st Avenue South in Seattle’s SODO district.
