Filson flagship store

Photos by Lara Swimmer [enlarge]

Filson has opened its 6,400-square-foot flagship store at 1741 First Ave. S.

The 54,400-square-foot building houses retail space, manufacturing and offices for the outdoor clothing and luggage retailer.

The store is located above the production area on the second floor, with a design that reflects the company’s rugged, crafty aesthetic.

A large trellis made of salvaged wood, fireplace, and old timber beams from a Boeing factory in Kent and a demolition site in South Lake Union give the space character.

Shoppers can see the 15,000-square-foot manufacturing floor, where the company’s bags are made.

The company will install an 18-foot, hand-carved totem pole by Orcas Island sculptor Aleph Geddis.

Owner: Filson

Project manager: Peter Baker of Montlake & Assoc.
