Filson's brand history has a legendary aura and its roots go back until mid 1800's and later in the 'American Gold Rush'.
His founder, C. C. Filson, was born in Nebraska, inheriting his father's pioneering spirit and love for the great outdoors. After roaming around the North and working as a railroad, he moved to Seattle, creating a company specialized in travel bags and accessories - the ideal tools for the explosion of Gold Rush in those years in Klondike.
Filson earns the brand reputation, it counts on the quality and resilience of the materials - exactly what the gold seekers were looking for. From then on, the brand became a point of reference for explorers, travelers, hunters and miners, and the Filson began to produce not only travelbags, but also blankets, footwear and clothing, always trying to listen carefully to the needs of his customers. During the 900s and especially since 1960, Filson's fame began to reach Europe and the rest of the world thanks to its valures of honesty, quality and durability.
These are still the values of the brand: qualities that, fortunately, never goes out of fashion, but continues to keep the brand at the top also in this new millennium.
