Filson, a brand known since 1897 for producing durable bags and luggage that get better with age, has recently released photos of its new Seattle Headquarters and Manufacturing Facility at 1741 1st Avenue South. As part of its initiative to expand distribution globally while improving the brand as a whole, the new facility has been designed to ensure top-notch quality control through its window into the manufacturing department on the 1st floor. At the moment, Filson has stores located in Seattle, Portland, Oregon, and London, England.
The recently acquired Seattle space, which totals 57,400 square feet and was once a warehouse, yields a new state-of-the-art factory, showroom, and office for the tenacious brand. “This expansion furthers our 116 year commitment to our customers to provide unfailing goods that allows them to do what they love in the outdoors,” said CEO Alan Kirk. Redwood and metal fixings found throughout the building harmoniously convey Filson’s American roots, as seen by the shots below.
