Feathered Friends was founded in 1972 by husband and wife team Peter and Carol Hickner. Drawn to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, they settled in Seattle, Washington and came to treasure the easy access to backpacking, climbing, and skiing. In the midst of the Boeing Bust of the early 1970â€™s Peter and Carol put their design and sewing skills to use and created their own jobs, producing jackets, sleeping bags, and bedding items from the basement of their home.
A project that started from the desire to build the gear they needed to enjoy their active outdoor lifestyle soon turned into a full time job. Word spread quickly among friends and colleagues who lined up to place orders for the hand made down garments, bags, and comforters. Peter and Carol soon realized this venture needed a name, and while gathered around a fire with some good friends and cold beers Feathered Friends was born. While they had neither a business plan nor financing, they did have the determination and skill to create world class down products.
Over the last four decades Feathered Friends has become the standard in quality, long lasting, and high performing down gear for expeditions and adventures. Each of our products unites our legacy of handmade construction techniques with the advancements of modern fabric technologies. The result is gear that excels in all conditions, from a cozy chair in your home to the summit of Mount Everest.
