Thank you to everyone who let us stitch on their beloved Filson gear!!! We couldn’t believe what a rad crew @filson1897 had and how down to earth all the customers were. Also to all of our friends who came out to support us yesterday. @dusty_diamond thank you for holding my leg steady when I started on that first jacket. I was so nervous and you are my rock.
Our immediate gratification culture has crippled us. We are so disconnected to the sheer amount of work, time and steps it takes to move a project forward that we find ourselves paralyzed.
Take the first step.
Look around. Breathe.
Take another step.
A tale of two briefcases. The green Filson briefcase #257 was a gift from my boss, Janet, at Raupp Campfitters before I headed off to grad school. I’ve carried it to 40 countries over 17 years. The zipper is gone, the fabric is rotting and I’ve been told it won’t pass New Zealand Biosecurity! So, it’s retiring to hold shotgun shells and hunting gear back in Idaho. In its place, a new Filson #257 !
@ejje34 you know the way to my heart! I'll have this thing for life! Can't wait to see you and Gunner this weekend. @filson1897 no better brand. Winter>Summer any day..... you just need the right stuff! Now where's my alehorn.... #filson1897#filson#winterfell#stark
RUGGED TWILL LUGGAGE
RUGGED TWILL LUGGAGE IS A RELATIVELY NEW ADDITION TO THE FILSON LINE. RELEASED IN 1991, RUGGED TWILL BRIEFCASES AND DUFFLES WERE DEVELOPED FOR WORKERS WHO WANTED THE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND DEPENDABILITY OF A FILSON PRODUCT IN THE BAGS AND LUGGAGE THEY USED EVERY DAY, WHETHER THEY'RE TRAVELING BY CESSNA, SEA PLANE, OR 747. TO PRODUCE A BAG THAT WILL ENDURE IN ANY CONDITION, WE GET TWILL FROM SCOTTISH MILLS WHO HAVE BEEN SPINNING COTTON SINCE BEFORE THE FIRST WORLD WAR AND LEATHER FROM WICKETT & CRAIG, ONE OF THE NATION'S LAST REMAINING VEGETABLE TANNERIES. WE BRING ALL THE MATERIALS TOGETHER IN OUR SEATTLE LUGGAGE FACTORY, WHERE EVERY PIECE OF RUGGED TWILL LUGGAGE IS CUT, SEWN, AND STITCHED.
