( a brief history )

Crescent Down Works

in 1974, after years of working in Eddie Bauer's first-ever down quality control laboratory, Anne Michelson decided to found Crescent Down Works, where she began producing vests and parkas to order in her own small shop located in Seattle's University District.

today, nearly 50 years later, the small team at Crescent Down Works continues to make every single piece in-house, from pattern to finished garment, under one roof in their Seattle factory now run by Anne's daughter, Annie.

every jacket and vest they make is a classic Northwest outerwear design, insulated with ethically sourced high-grade down, and paired with traditional fabrics that offer the perfect combination of durability and performance.
