Widely known for their lasting Rugged Twill bags and luggage, this suede collection stays true to the Filson standard of quality and durability by using vegetable-tanned suede leather that Chicago’s century-old Horween Tannery developed expressly for heavy duty footwear. Now that’s sustainability and reliability we can count on.
Suede is usually stripped off of the hide, hence the floppy nature of suede products. Filson’s suede bags are made with the whole hide, full-grain leather presented with the rough side out. The line’s tote and backpack are made with leather that’s weatherproofed during the tanning process so that it can endure the harshest conditions. Whether you’re hanging ten on a hot day in Dolores or handling the crazy Richmond weather — this collection is treated to endure abrasion and bending without breaking down.
