A company with history
Authenticity, quality, durability – this is what one of the most traditional American labels for outdoor, hunting and workwear and equipment stands for. During the great gold rush of the early 20th century, C.C. Filson founded C.C. Filson's Pioneer Alaska Clothing and Blanket Manufacturers in Seattle to provide adventurers and gold miners on their way to the Yukon with equipment that could withstand the harsh conditions of the cold North.
In constant dialogue with its customers from the wood industry, mining and many other sectors, Filson continued to optimize its product range and created unmistakable classics that were not only durable and hard-wearing, but also comfortable. Some of these classics have been in the product range of this traditional company for over 100 years now.

Materials of the Filson bags
Over time, Filson developed a robust, densely woven cotton canvas treated with a patented oil finish wax to protect workers from dirt, rain and even injuries from sawing or other tools. The characteristic fabric was popularly called "Tin Cloth-Canvas", referred to its armor-like properties.
Today, more than 100 years after its development, Filson still uses the natural tin cloth canvas for outdoor clothing, bags and luggage. It is extremely durable, tear-resistant and water-repellent due to its special wax coating.
Besides the tin cloth canvas, the so-called "rugged twill" is very popular as a fabric for Filson bags and luggage. This is a slightly heavier cotton fabric which is woven particularly tightly and finished with a paraffin wax layer. It is not only water-repellent, but also extremely rugged and durable - almost indestructible.
Just like in processing, the American label also focuses on tradition, quality and sustainability when it comes to materials. The twill is sourced from Scottish factories that have been working with cotton for over a century. The leather comes from Wickett & Craig, one of the last tanneries in the United States which produces high-quality leather with an eco-friendly process and vegetable tanning agents.
The nylon fabric used by Filson is abrasion-resistant, water-repellent and flexible. It is lighter than the two cotton types tin cloth canvas and rugged twill and has a shorter drying time.
