Crescent Down Works was founded by Anne Michelson in 1974 as a custom-order down vest company in Seattle, Washington. Inspired by her love of hiking, camping, and the outdoors, Anne applied her knowledge of down clothing manufacturing from her first job at Northwest outerwear company, Eddie Bauer, to her own design and style. Since those early days, the company have expanded from vests to a complete line of outerwear, all made in their factory in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. All of CDW's products are made-to-order; crafted with acute attention to detail and the highest quality materials. Crescent Down Works continues on as a family run business, committed to excellent quality and timeless style.
