Filson was founded in 1897 as an "outdoor clothing manufacturer" to challenge the gold rush in Seattle, Washington. Since the mining of gold is an extremely poor environment for clothing, we started producing clothing with the best natural materials and uncompromising design and sewing. It has even been said that the FILSON mark is synonymous with trust. In wool, we still work with stubbornness that takes more than two years from harvesting the raw hair to finishing it into a product. It continues to be loved by people who need true quality inside, and is also used for some staff of the US Air Force and Army.

The company's wool products still take more than two years from harvesting to finishing, and because of this stubbornness, they continue to be loved by people who need true quality in the harsh natural environment, such as US forest rangers, lumberjacks, hunters, and adventurers , and are also used by some US Air Force and Army staff.
