The first Filson Store outside the US has opened his doors in Osaka, Japan.
Born in 1850, C.C. Filson inhereted his father's pioneer spirit and love of the outdoors. After homesteading in Nebraska and roaming the country as a railroad conductor, he moved to the small city of Seattle, Washington in the 1890's. Filson's timing couldn't have been better. By 1897, the great Klondike Gold Rush was on, and thousands of fortune hunters were stampeding into Seattle, headed north. Armed with a strong work ethic, a reputation for honesty, and several years' experience operating a small logger's outfitting store, C.C. Filson was ready to stake his claim to fame. Today Filson is known for rugged quality for over 100 years.
